The CNN crew watches the results of the special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district; where a defeat of a Republican by a Democrat with limitless funding in a purplish congressional district was supposed to signal the end of Donald Trump or something.
Republicans picked up a win in South Carolina’s 5th CD as well. Both of them were won by Republican establishment types who will slavishly do the bidding of the financiers and donor class. So, forgive me for not getting too excited.
Anyway, in Donald Trump’s Handmaid’s Tale America, Republicans have just sent another woman to congress. Sorry, narrative.
It is kind of fun that wealthy Democrats blew something north of $30 million to lose this election. Probably closer to or greater than $40 million. 95% of Democrat Job “Pajama Boy” Ossoff’s funding came from outta state; mostly New York and California.
I am just pondering the irony now that people in the throes of faux outrage about “Russian meddling” in American elections… spent millions of dollars and sent volunteers down to meddle in an election in a district none of them live in. Is that irony? Or is it just hypocrisy?
