Dems win Georgia

Posted By Russ Carroll

…either way. Having Warnock or Walker is a big boost for the Dems. Not sure which result DNC leaders actually prefer.

That’s true, too, but I was more  referring to the goldmine if idiotic quotes emanations from a Sen Walker over then next 6 years.

Democrats will do everything in their power to try and get Trump nominated. I wonder if the hard-core Trumpers even care that he is a losing proposition.

Trump was right when he said in 2016 that he brought a lot of new people into the GOP, many of whom had never voted GOP in the past. This is part of the GOP dilemma. He obviously chased off many more independent, and principled conservatives, like myself and Jim, in the process cool

Even if miracle of miracles happens and Trump is neutralized, will whatever is left and those willing to come back be enough to win a presidential election?

Well, that is germane to my point: DeSantis, instead of morphing into a moderate, centrist candidate, will have to maintain his aurea of animus in his persona, policies and decision-making practices in order to placate and maintain Trump1's base...

I’m not one to help the D’S generally, but I seriously doubt it will work to try and paint DeSantis as Trump Jr.

Not according to the Wall Street Journal:

"Ms. Sinema didn’t say in her opinion article or the video whether she would caucus with Democrats, but she is keeping her committee assignments controlled by the Democrats and signaled that the move won’t change the way she votes or works in the Senate. Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Angus King of Maine are both independents but caucus with Democrats and are counted as part of their majority."

He actually teased this yesterday, which I was dreading. Now that the world mocks him, how long before he pulls the "It's a joke, can't you take a joke" schtick.
