Personal log. Stardate 202212.6.
At the time of this log, Reverend Raphael Warnock has been re-elected to the Senate in Georgia. His win is a great testatment to the resiliency of Georgia Democrats, who pressed on against voter suppression, in opposition to the worst candidate* ever put forth in a Senate race in my lifetime.
With that said, the joy at the win is tempered with absolute fury that the GOP would even run someone as fundamentally unfit as Herschel Walker in the first place. It’s a tried and true tactic for them – “Blacks will vote for any Black face.” Ask Alan Keyes how that turned out. I do not believe that the “brain trust” in the Republican party realize even now just how big a mistake they made.
I have a feeling they will, and sooner rather than later.
But tonight, we celebrate.
*I would be remiss if I did not state that the absolute WORST candidate for a Senate seat ever was disgraced Judge Roy Moore of Alabama.
