One of the few good things I can say about the MAGA Republicans is that if you let them talk enough, they’ll just end up ruining themselves.
Using their own words against them is a favorite tactic of mine because there’s nothing a Trumper hates more than the truth.
And the truthiest of all of the truths is that Herschel Walker just might be the worst candidate the GOP has ever had.
This is not a smart man, folks.
He can barely string sentences together as a result of residual brain damage thanks to football.
He has a long history of lying, wife-beating, and denying the many children he’s fathered along with the abortions he’s paid for.
Herschel Walker is a candidate for Senate only because Donald Trump asked himself, “Who do I know who’s a famous Black man?” and that’s how we got to ol’ Deputy Dawg up there running against the incumbent Democrat who inherited MLK’s pulpit.
At the same time, Trump is tanking in his own special way.
Almost all of his MAGA midterm candidates lost, his lackluster 2024 campaign announcement seems to be all for show at the moment, and he’s also dealing with the new backlash over his dinner with Holocaust deniers.
Since Democrats have already locked in their Senate majority, many MAGAts don’t see a reason to show up for Georgia’s early voting.
Meanwhile, Sen. Raphael Warnock’s supporters turned out for him in droves on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. And a new and incredibly impactful ad from Warnock’s campaign drives home exactly why.
Georgia voters sit at a table and listen to a recording through headphones without any previous information regarding what they’re about to hear.
Just watch their reactions, and then stick around for the wrap-up.
That’s literally real talk, folks. The realest.
It gives me (and a whole bunch of people on Twitter) hope that Warnock will now win by an even bigger margin than the predicted 4.9%.
This new Warnock ad is perfect. pic.twitter.com/V4JkgIk9sj

Herschel Walker lies about the basic facts of his life. He said he was in law enforcement. He was not. He said he worked for the FBI. He did not. He said he was valedictorian. He was not. He said he graduated from the UGA. He did not.
He's not fit to represent Georgia.

Herschel Walker blamed Raphael Warnock for 1970s TV show Archie Bunker not being “on the air today.”
Walker: “I used to love Archie Bunker. Did you not like Archie Bunker? But because of Senator Warnock, it wouldn’t be on the air because he’s still living in the past.” pic.twitter.com/BQFYR2mKAU
