Make Georgia About Mitch

Georgia’s runoffs for Senate control should be a referendum about Mitch McConnell, perhaps the most unpopular dude in politics. Hope Dems make it so.

How’s this for getting out the Dem vote in GA runoffs for Senate control? John Lewis presided over the House vote to restore the Voting Rights Act gutted by Mitch McConnell’s Supreme Court, who has kept that legislation sitting on his desk for a year, never allowing a Senate vote.

Georgia Dems, don’t forget this is how Mitch McConnell will use power if you let him keep it: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” (National Journal, 2010)

Barack Obama’s new book, on Mitch McConnell: What he “lacked in charisma or interest in policy he more than made up for in discipline, shrewdness and shamelessness — all of which he employed in the single-minded and dispassionate pursuit of power.”

  1. Power does not corrupt men; fools, however, if they get into a position of power, corrupt power.

  2. Craig – That is a brilliant angle.  Personally, I hope 2020 does its job and  whatever the hell made his hands gross takes him out of the game completely.  But just in case, vote your Ossoff! and for Warnock, too. Flip the Senate…and Yertle will be on this back.

  3. Bink – The city-bikes we’re dumped everywhere in the city and suburbs.  I don’t see racks around here anymore.  Maybe downtown.  I know they had problems with folks getting hurt with e-scooters, operators and pedestrians.   They tried their best to destroy those bikes, too.  Tried to rip the lights off of them, but they were sturdy.   It’s not like Denmark where folks feel real community and don’t try to ruin it for everyone else. 

  4. Can the workplace be made so miserable that they will leave?  Can they be prevented from accessing intel, because they ARE moles.

  5. dailykos ran this re mitch last week and i wonder if it had impact or  got any notice:

    If I were Mitch McConnell, I’d be trying to make a deal. Any deal to keep him and his wife Chao out of prison.

    Since becoming President Trump’s Transportation Secretary, Elaine Chao has come under fire for scandal after scandal.

    Allegedly abusing her position to boost her family’s business in China. Maintaining her shares in a construction materials company, more than a year after she pledged to sell them. And most recently, giving her husband Mitch McConnell’s constituents special treatment — reportedly steering millions of federal dollars to Kentucky while he faces re-election.

    The Department of Transportation’s Inspector General left his role while investigating these serious allegations. Now, it’s crucial that he is replaced, and quickly — so that Chao is held accountable for her corrupt dealings.

    But who’s in charge of the confirmation process for the Inspector General’s replacement? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    That’s right: McConnell and his wife are at the center of the investigation — and yet, he has an enormous say in who gets to lead it.

    We need to make it clear to Mitch McConnell: the American people won’t stand for this corruption. Add your name to tell him to recuse himself from the nomination process.

  6. craig, they need to remind GA black voters how mitch brags about blocking obama. example from last year on fox:  

  7. I hate McConnell as much as I hate trump.  Think I’m gonna have to get me a copy of Obama’s book…  sounds like a great read.

  8. Is Mitch running for GA Senator?  No?
     
    Then: relentless, juvenile attack ads against Perdue and Loeffler.
     
    When will Dems realize attack ads are the only effective kind?  100 more years of losing elections taking the “high road”?

  9. Hillary for AG!!!!  And she can lock him up!
     
    On Friday the 13th a long time friend called to say his 22 year old daughter who insisted on hanging with friends without a mask, going to college & working, and not wearing a mask at home, has given Covid to him, his wife, and 15 year old son. He’s frantic & terrified.  And that useless, orange, bucket of lard is AWOL!

  10. I suggested quite awhile back that Hillary was a natural for an Ambassador position.  At the time, I was thinking St. James, but UN is even more appropriate as it combines her resident state with her international experience.  If she wants it, I think Obama just might owe her a huge favor or two.  

     

  11. Craig

    Maybe you can explain it to me.  Why does the GOP want to cater to their most ignorant and/or racist constituents when they do have honorable policies that could be sold.  Is the lust for power and greed so great they, or at least McConnell, willing to burn down the house rather than take a chance on a return to sanity?  

  12. GA should definitely use Mitch blocking Obama to get out the vote.  There’s plenty to go on with the Uber-wealthy Perdue and Loeffler that folks will hate, though.  Loeffler downplaying the  virus while she sold stocks, for instance.  

  13. Here’s proof that intelligence is not fungible with respect to different areas of expertise.

    Elon Musk predicted in March, at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, that there would be “probably close to zero new cases” in the United States by the end of April.

    Now, the Tesla chief executive is trying to figure out whether he has a virus that has killed at least 242,000 Americans. The billionaire said early Friday that he’s experiencing cold-like symptoms, but that four rapid coronavirus tests have produced two positives and two negatives — an experience that left him questioning the process.
    (Continues)

    Both tests yield false negatives (2-37% for PCR, up to 50% for antigen) but both have negligible false positive rates.  Antibody tests yield both false negatives and false positives.https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/which-test-is-best-for-covid-19-2020081020734
    Good thing he isn’t as bad at electric cars as he is at medical chemistry.

  14. People should stand outside the Whitehouse and chant loser loser loser loser and sore lose alternating with bad sport

  15. 306 Electoral College votes for Biden, what Trump got in 2016 and called it a landslide. Joe also won popular vote by more than 5 million, which Trump lost. Landslide!

  16. talk about an understatement – boy, did they ever “screw up” – bigly

    the hill:

    GOP mega-donor Charles Koch said he regrets his decades of partisanship and now wants to focus on bridging the political divide, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

    In an interview shortly before the election, the 85-year-old libertarian tycoon told the newspaper that after funding conservative causes, he is turning his attention to issues like poverty, addiction, gang violence, homelessness and recidivism.

    […]

    In a new book co-authored by Koch — “Believe in People: Bottom-Up Solutions for a Top-Down World,” slated for publication Tuesday — he reflects on what he called the divisiveness of his partisan politics.

    “Boy, did we screw up!” he writes in the book. “What a mess!”

    Despite Koch’s calls for unity, his political contributions largely favored GOP candidates in the 2020 election cycle, with $2.8 million donated to Republicans and just $221,000 for Democratic candidates, the Journal reported.

    Still, Koch congratulated President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their election victory, saying, “I hope we all use this post-election period to find a better way forward.”

    Just ignore him- that’s his greatest fear

  18. Trump in Rose Garden sounded uncertain about the future of his admin, but still clinging to false hope he could somehow win an election he lost: “Whatever happens in the future, who knows which administration it will be. I guess time will tell.”

    Time has spoken, dumb ass

  19. Pogo. That works
     Bink.  That is what should happen but it isn’t
     
    so loser loser loser

  20. Craig 
    Thanks for the Trump Rose Garden report. Now I don’t have to hear his voice. That damn asshole loser will lie to the end of his days.
    On Hillary at the UN, she’s a natural fit. Whoever Joe chooses is fine with me. Hillary will always be a hero to me because of CHIPS and what it meant in my life because of Ashley’s head injury. I’m biased :0)

  21. Maybe Koch should help fund the run-offs for  Ossoff and Warnock, just to show everyone how much they want to bridge that divide.  

  22. He’s totally humiliated.  And the longer it goes on the more humiliated he’ll be.  That’ll do for now. 

    The reckoning cometh, however.

  23. tony, that depends on which of the 4 cheeks everyone has.  think of the 2 nether ones you have bare and turned up directly pointed at him   😉

  24. Charles Koch has always been the most purely Libertarian of the Kochs with a decided commitment to sharing the wealth to charity and community  particularly with emphasis on art and education.

    As with any “ISM”, it fails.  It seems that he has come to that realization finally if possibly too late.

    Certainly putting his funds in “at the bottom” would be a sea change for both libertarians and the even more benighted Republicans.  You can’t pull yourself up by your bootstraps if you have neither boots or straps.  That is where the money needs to go.

     

  25. i feel like we all should buy the Georgia vote-counters burritos as a thank you for their service since Republican cry-babies are forcing them to do their volunteer job three times

  26. The grifter-in-chief only has so many days left to keep crying foul in order to bilk idiots out of their cash.
