About Last Night…

Black and Blue, and Abrams Too

H/T Scissorhead Jimmy T

Without going too deep into it, Team Evil lost bigley, thanks to Stacey Abrams as Raphael Warnock (D) defeated grifter Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) to become the first Black Democratic Senator from Georgeduh, and Jon Ossoff (D) has presumably defeated grifter Sen. David Perdue (R) with most of the outstanding votes in Democratic strongholds. So to sum it up, Georgia turned blue-ish, elected two Democratic Senators, one Black and the other Jewish and You’re Fired’ed notorious feather-nesting grifters, a white billionaire and a white millionaire.

Effectively, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell was defeated last night, too. Tiger Beat says:

Senate Majority Leader MITCH MCCONNELL won’t escape the conflagration, either. He refused to allow a clean vote on sending Americans $2,000 Covid stimulus checks, putting Loeffler and Perdue in a bind as the two (a billionaire and millionaire, respectively) fumbled to explain why they were against “stimmy” checks before they were for them. Warnock, Ossoff and Biden had an easy response: Vote for us and you’ll get help.

Quote of the night:

“When you tell people, your vote doesn’t count and has been stolen, and people start to believe that, then you go to the two senators and ask the secretary of state to resign and trigger a civil war in the Republican Party when we need to unite, all of that stems with his decision-making since the Nov. 3 election.”

–Gabriel Sterling spokesperson for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on CNN.

Comrade Prznint Stupid has now lost: 1) The House, B) The Senate, and iii) the Whitey House all during the 4th Reich. All he has left is the very stacked Judiciary and that might fall, too, as President-elect Joe Biden can now have his own justices appointed, and might be able to have some of his agenda passed. (Remember the Blue Dogs are now kingmakers again. Looking at you Manchin and Sinema.)

Adding to the shouting last night, violent right-wing Red Hats descended on DC and clashed with cops.

UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat:

With 98 percent reported, Ossoff had 51.2 percent of the vote compared to Perdue’s 49.81 percent — roughly a 16,300 vote difference. Under Georgia law, the losing candidate may request a recount if their lead is half a percentage point or less. If Ossoff is able to hold onto his current lead, then he will be the next Georgia senator. If not, Perdue is making clear that he will fight and likely go through the recount process.

UPDATE 2:

UPDATE 3: Predictable –

    I’m still waiting to celebrate the big win, but Warnock has been declared and that’s a great accomplishment. Ossoff’s win would be the best news ever, so I’m still hopeful. Mitch is going to be damaged, regardless, as his iron hand over the Senators has weakened. They ignored his request that they stand down in this challenge to the election confirmation. And he could soon be the Minority Leader…so awesome!

    My prediction: If both Warnock and Ossoff win, Manchin will turn, due to irresistible entreaties from Moscow Mitch. So, we lose the Senate.

    • I don’t think so.

      Manchin isn’t stupid and has been a pretty reliable D on most stuff since 2016. He knows if he turns, Mitch will never trust him…once a turncoat, always a turncoat. plus he’ll get primaried by the MAGAs from hell as a RINO and lose.

      Staying as a D gives him a fighting chance in 2022.

      If he doesn’t flip, as TG sez, he’s a Kingmaker on the D side. If I wanted to keep my seat, taht’s what I’d do.

      Kirsten Sinema is most def a Blue Dog (but then again, so was Gabby Giffords…and Mark Kelley is going to be a pretty blueish canine) but that’s the nature of a competitive state like AZ (Gabby’s district has flip-flopped more than once in the last 20 years, even though local government is solidly Team D, District 2 covers a lot of non-urban Tucson ground.) I think that she’s got enough of a bad taste of Mitches reign that she’ll stick with us on most things; definitely on the important stuff.

      It’s not as if their opponents in the next election aren’t going to be screaming and ranting about how they’re all baby-killing lizard socialists from Planet Radical Antifa Communist China.

        The Palmer Report has written about Manchin before. As a Senator from West by god Virginia, he’s never going to be a lefty. But he always comes through when the Dems need his vote.

      He was more power as a kingmaker. He’s staying where he is.

      I think she’s smart enough not to follow in Howard Dean’s footsteps. I have no doubt she could revamp the sorely needed 50 state strategy for the dems at the local level. She knows or should know that any national strategy moving forward goes against the fundraising & obvious influence by wall st. and the inbred wealthy class of donors. Her work would be best suited by continuing to encourage & motivate apathetic minorities throughout the neoconfederate south to outvote delusional & fearful white evangelicals, thus turning red states blue or in most cases purple.

      Besides, after being cheated by the good ole boys club in GA, I think she wants another shot at governor and given the obvious schism that trumpism has created within the morally bankrupt republican cult, she might well have a great opportunity to turn that third world sh*thole state around.

        Good points R. Maybe the nation is lucky she did not become governor, but still had the motivation and drive to do what she did this election cycle. But yeah, whatever she might want; a new puppy? future GA governorship? Absolutely.

    Nicely done TG, nicely done. I would add that Stacey will beat the Republicans black and blue.
    When she’s done they’ll be lucky to limp home…

    Thank you Ms. Abrams.

    And for a little icing on the cake:

      One could hope that as reported Justice Breyer will more than likely step down, Biden will nominate Obama for the SC. That would be so delicious to see the grunting and howls from the lobotomized horde of trumpkins being owned.

    Abrams is a hero and a warrior. I hope she stays here in GA to continue the fight right on up to the Governors office. Maybe then, after running GA well for a couple of terms she will run for president. I will continue to watch and support her for as long as she stays true to constituents. She spent 10 years in the GA House, 6 of those as the minority leader. She is the real deal and I couldn’t be prouder of her accomplishments.

    Also- KKKemp and KKKelly can suck it. Once people get in the habit of voting, they usually stay in the habit.
