"Georgia’s Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker evaded a question about the Uvalde school shooting Tuesday evening after his big victory. Walker ran away with the primary, carrying nearly 70% of the vote as of 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. He managed to do so while avoiding debates against his opponents and amid questions about his fitness as a candidate. CNN’s Manu Raju asked Walker asked about the elementary school shooting in Texas that left 19 children dead. Raju posted a video of the very brief encounter. “Do you support any new gun laws in the wake of this Texas shooting?” Raju asked him. “What I’d like to do, what I’d like to do is see it and everything and stuff,” Walker said. “I’d Like to see it.”


The moment offered little in the way of confidence Georgia’s voters can expect hearty debates between Walker and Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), -- Walker’s reluctance to talk about the issues frustrated his GOP primary opponents. One of them referred to his political blueprint as “Biden basement strategy.”


Yea, but to be fair, at least Biden went to debates and even came up with more coherent answers to policy questions than what Walker has done...but what Walker is doing is still brilliant....just totally avoid debates, just totally avoid addressing any issues with any hint of being knowledgeable about it.....just try to keep it to a few simple slogans like just say "we need more freedoms" or "cut regulations" -- no matter what the question was -- just give those answers and you will be fine...and if you do give an answer that really makes no real sense -- that's cool too...because you can simply claim you were being obtuse on purpose as some sort of 4D-chess move and then just claim you triggered the libs.....

The added bonus is, no matter how clear it is that you are scared shitless to be exposed as someone who knows nothing about policy or legislating -- in fact, you don't even have to have any policies at all.....there will already be some think tank or lobbying group like ALEC or Club For Growth that will tell you what your policies will be..... so all you really have to do is just campaign on whining about stuff.....just complain about useless random stuff like how TV commercials have too many biracial kids in them, or just say "trans kids in schools" 3 times real fast -- and suddenly you will have an army of sycophants making excuses for you ...Now this strategy only works with Conservatives, but its still a good strategy tho.

Yea, but I hope you see my point....

All Conservatives really do is nominate a performer.....if they have some fame, that is even better....

And all that person has to do is play a character and put on a show for the base....

Everyone knows all of the policy decisions will be made by other folks.....

But like I said, this is more of a Republican thing....Democrat voters kinda want to know what your healthcare policy would be, or what your position on Medicare/Social Security is....because we'd rather go to real concerts to see performers, not rallies...

One top senatorial Republican candidate in Georgia is accused of threatening his then-wife’s life. Another in Pennsylvania is accused of choking his wife and hitting his young children and lost custody of his three children, then quit the campaign. One in Ohio is dating a subordinate on his campaign. And in Missouri, a leading candidate is the state’s former GOP governor, who resigned after a hairdresser with

That was years ago and it was just innocent locker room banter...

"In a short time, Reverend Raphael Warnock has built a clear, extensive record of fighting for all Georgians in the U.S. Senate," Campaign Manager Quentin Fulks said in a statement. "He presents a clear choice for voters this fall and a distinct contrast with Republican nominee Herschel Walker, whose pattern of lies, exaggerations and outright bizarre claims reveal he is not up for the job of serving Georgians in the U.S. Senate."

Walker has dramatically inflated his record as a businessman and falsely said he graduated at the top of his class from the University of Georgia. He didn’t graduate, as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported. He has also made multiple gaffes on the campaign trail.

I appreciate Herschel Walker as a world class athlete and amazing running back. But a state senator?

He stated that he graduated in the top 1% of his class at UGA. He never graduated from UGA.
He stated that he was valedictorian in his high school class. His high school did not have valedictorians.
He stated that he owns the largest upholstery business in the US. The company does not exist.

And now this statement on gun control? WTF?

He also denies that Trump ever said the election was rigged.

It doesn't matter. This is where we're going for a while. The number of people who are fine with all of this, is not small.

ATLANTA (AP) — At first glance, Herschel Walker has a coveted political profile for a potential Senate candidate in Georgia.

He was a football hero at the University of Georgia before his long NFL career. He’s a business owner whose chicken products are distributed across the U.S. And he’s a Black conservative with backing from former President Donald Trump, a longtime friend.

But an Associated Press review of hundreds of pages of public records tied to Walker’s business ventures and his divorce, including many not previously reported, sheds new light on a turbulent personal history that could dog his Senate bid. The documents detail accusations that Walker repeatedly threatened his ex-wife’s life, exaggerated claims of financial success and

Sometimes you have to use hyperbole to sell your product.....

So Herschel is just being a brilliant marketer....who hasn't lied about their resume....

So lying about your grades or lying about owning certain businesses, all marketing...

As long as he promises to trigger the libs, and crack down on the outgroups.... that is all that matters...

Maybe these people are right. Maybe they should have their own land. They can name it God's Country or something like that.

It would be nice to be able to look at them as something "other", and to be able to say "at least that isn't America".
and they will complain...and they will still be FREQUENT tourists to the rest of the country because that is how they get to have something to complain about...


it is like when right-wingers threw a tantrum and promised to leave Twitter and start their own twitter like platforms...

What happened? They all complained about not having any libs to troll....so they came back..and now they want Elon to buy Twitter...because creating their own wasn't what they wanted...

Well, there was a lone 3 syllable word there among all of the other monosyllabic tripe. One thing about Herschel...he knows his audience.

I am sure there is a joke mixed in there somewhere -- but
You are the queen of not funny, so don't even...

Walker sounded dumb.

What he should have said it that the left groomed this tranny shooter and white supremacist, Salvador Ramos, and that the solution is to never give the left the bullshit they want.

And we need machine guns.

I would start talking about MANDATORY carry for all adults.

So pissing off the other political party is what matters? Not leadership or the ability to govern?

Do you not see how this is exactly why we are in the shape we are in? Doesn't matter if we get anything accomplished, as long as we piss off the other side of the aisle.

Virtually every problem is now approached from a purely tribal political angle now.

That's why we can no longer fix big problems.
