Warnock Wins Georgia

Voters in Georgia turned out a win for the Democrats last night. They also turned out a GOP senator with lots of baggage and not very much going for her. Nevertheless it was close.

Donald Trump did as much for the Democrats as anyone, attacking his own party and turning off voters is swing districts. His effect will be pondered for some time.

Stacey Abrams ran the ground game that politicians dream about, and got the minority vote out. She needs to run the DNC.

Warnock ran a clean race, and just enough voters decided his color was not a factor. A black democratic senator from Georgia. Who da thunkit.

What a list. What a shining example of the right. On one side you have some very brilliant actors, who have gone to the best schools and received accolades in abundance. On the other side are political hacks with the sense of rocks. Somewhere in the middle are the political snakes. Can you place them correctly in their respective slots?

It is sometimes easy, and sometimes very difficult. Has Marsha Blackburn ever made a lick of sense? Not that we recall. But the Louisiana hayseed John Kennedy can in rare moments exhibit critical thinking skills. Tommy Tuberville has yet to come even close.

Josh Hawley? A world-class mind, like Cruz and Cotton. So how did those minds become so cheapened by the thin excuses they have for challenging an landslide election? Where do you plumb those depths? How do you get to the position in which, despite all that good grey matter, you end up acting like a clown?

The Republican Party seems to attract all kinds, but in the end they become one kind.
