DECISION DESK CALLS GA-06 FOR HANDEL; REPUBLICANS HOLD SC-05


John Ossoff is a ROCKSTAR, BABY!

...


The New York Times Election Needle is back (remember it from November 8, 2016?), and it's pointing towards Handel.

Previous post follows. Will update when John Ekdahl gives me the secret sign.

...

Results at Decision Desk HQ.

The Democrats are also trying to win a vacated seat in SC-5, though that seems unlikely.

Today, Karen Handel won 100% of the vote cast by candidates, because the Man Child Ossoff lives three miles outside the district "to support his girlfriend," though I wonder how moving into someone else's place constitutes supporting them.

Jon Ossoff and his minions have given many and sundry answers as to how far he lives from the district he would represent. Sometimes he says a mile and a half, sometimes two miles. (His staffers say either "a couple of blocks" or "three blocks.")

It is unclear if Ossoff's change in distance was prompted by Washington Free Beacon reporter Brent Scher. He painstakingly documented his two-hour journey on Monday to walk more than three miles from Ossoff's home to the sixth district.

Video below.

Also below, the two widgets from Decision Desk which will update the results from GA-06 and SC-05.

When it comes to their own governments, states can have restrictions like that on those who wish to run for office. But, when it comes to the federal government, states are not allowed to add extra qualifications beyond what is named in the US constitution. They have trouble enforcing even those.

Was VERY impressed with her, and had some one-on-one time with her after the event.

I asked what she would do to ensure our military would get to vote in presidential elections, including those deployed.

She said there was no reason whatsoever we couldn't have kiosks for voting on every single military base, including in war zones.

Too bad that wasn't the case when our son was cheated out of voting in 2012. "Lost ballot" my ass.

When
it comes to their own governments, states can have restrictions like

federal government, states are not allowed to add extra qualifications
beyond what is named in the US constitution. They have trouble enforcing
even those.

I'm certain that bit of cynical bullshit shaved perhaps 2 or 3 points in a close primary challenge that Lugar never thought would be close.

The bad news? Democrat Donnelly beat GOP nominee Manchin. The good news? Dick Lugar, that carpetbagging RINO, was prematurely retired. I'm told he remains very bitter about his loss.

Yes, the Dems will use the most fanciful made up stories to attack non Dems. Such as how they continue to blame Republicans in Michigan for the Flint water problems despite the fact that the entire city and the state water department and the EPA overseeing it are Democrats. Flint has had Democrat only adminstrations for almost 60 years, as has Detroit where the water was delivered from.

But , even today, Dems will stand up in the govt. chambers of the state house and in city government and say these problems are because of Republican policies.

It's simply an ingrained, reflexive behavior to lie and blame Republicans. I don't think there is any way to cure it.

But on every issue they discussed, she sounded like Ann Coulter (loves America, pro-Capitalism, believes Global Warming/Climate Change is a fraud, wants economic growth and jobs, hates how the Left has destroyed Education in general and Journalism in particular, is an atheist but believes the country needs religion and has warned of the horrible consequences of secular humanism, et. al.).

they discussed, she sounded like Ann Coulter (loves America,
pro-Capitalism, believes Global Warming/Climate Change is a fraud, wants
economic growth and jobs, hates how the Left has destroyed Education in

country needs religion and has warned of the horrible consequences of
secular humanism, et. al.).

And so does Wahoo's. They have all these stickers: "My momma is punk rock and eats at Wahoos." "My daddy shreds the gnar and eats at Wahoo's."

462 "I wonder if Rauner's game is to lose, so he can get Trump to force Illinois into receivership (I don't know what the exact term for state-bankruptcy is)"

Rauner would be classified as a RINO anywhere but in IL. He was a typical wealthy Chicago liberal (he and his wife were big donors to Planned Parenthood, for example) until he, seemingly out of nowhere, got the notion to run for governor as a Republican. Outside of being anti-public-employee union and relatively amenable to gun owners (he's an avid hunter), he isn't conservative in the sense most of you would define it, and he was firmly in the Never Trump camp. To this day he won't even mention Trump's name if he can possibly avoid it. I personally have wondered whether his real aim wasn't to destroy what's left of the Illinois GOP from within.

I turned off the main road onto a road with cornfields on either side, where the corn was about five feet high and made sort of a tunnel effect.

573 gracepc, no, not pathetic - it's just that you (and millions) are trapped in an unresponsive 2-party system - which has very robust barriers-to-entry built in, not to mention (apparently) some sort of magic sauce that turns, for example, a Jeff Flake (AZ) from what he was, into what he is now.

It's really breath-taking, for those who understand the substance of the issues and the mechanics and dynamics of the process. I refer to the GOP's current behavior.

But the less sophisticated, and the tribal, and those who aren't affected directly by the country's trajectory, find it easy to cheer the nominal "success" of the GOP - at the ballot box - and rationalize the stunning lack of follow-through where it matters.

And we have a unique (in our history, I'm fairly sure) additional factor - this absurd, unbelievable Beltway witch-hunt involving "Russia!" (taking place against the background of Argentine-style lawlessness in last administration and by permanent guvamint types into the current one), wherein the "majority" party is effectively abetting the smearing and lynching of an administration of "their" party.

Yep. And I keep thinking. There MUST be a solution. (to the GOP) I'm pretty cynical by nature but these creeps are a real stretch.

I was astonished when Sessions recused himself, and then just gob smacked with a Special Consul and no evidence and so many Congressional Committee Investigations.

It would be a sweet dream if Trump becomes a very effective and popular American President with a healthy nation here and abroad. And then I would like to see payback. Yep. I am that petty.

It's an ever more complex world. At 30 you're very lucky if you know something about your specialized corner of the world, and luckier if you understand that's all you understand. The first bit of wisdom experience bestows is humbleness and self-awareness.

This cult of youth that seems to revel in listicle-based Voxpertise needs to keep losing and keep losing hard. "I have expensive degrees and was a coffee serf for another guy who faked the funk in government" is not a valid credential to impose your opinions on the government's subjects.

And no, I don't think there's any way to tell that $$$ will be harder to come by for Dem candidates after this latest debacle.

Recall that the Dems are sort of like CA state revenues - supported by a tiny handful of uber-wealthy idiots and fascists. They have nowhere else to go, no other stupid power-mad "ideology" to finance.

Even if, as appears likely, the GOP will do very little with its power, and Trump is effectively crippled (at least compared to what he *could* do with normal party support) and/or plays small-ball on some big issues, the Dem donors will act/believe/spend like it's the end of the world.

But wait. We've already got Democratic urban machine pols renaming everything in sight after TFG, because TFG is "the next JFK".

So wouldn't Lemon's belief imply Tossoff is the next next JFK?

Based on his underwater performance tonight, Tossoff looks more like Ted than Jack. Blub blub.

"I wonder if Rauner's game is to lose, so he can get Trump to force Illinois into receivership (I don't know what the exact term for state-bankruptcy is)"

Rauner would be classified as a RINO anywhere but in IL. He was a typical wealthy Chicago liberal (he and his wife were big donors to Planned Parenthood, for example) until he, seemingly out of nowhere, got the notion to run for governor as a Republican. Outside of being anti-public-employee union and relatively amenable to gun owners (he's an avid hunter), he isn't conservative in the sense most of you would define it, and he was firmly in the Never Trump camp. To this day he won't even mention Trump's name if he can possibly avoid it. I personally have wondered whether his real aim wasn't to destroy what's left of the Illinois GOP from within.

----------

I think any state that declares bankruptcy and wants the other 49 states to bail it out needs to be sent back to Territorial status.

Yes Territorial Status. No US Senators or Representatives. The US President appoints a Territorial Governor. They cannot be readmitted as a state until they have balanced their state books for five years, and paid back everything they were lent by other states or the feds.

You elected the idiots that screwed your state up, you own it. You get treated like little children until you learn to act like adults. You do not get a say in running the federal government until you can run your own damned state responsibly. Will it hurt? Damned straight! Stupid should hurt. Irresponsible should hurt. Electing crooks should hurt. How many Illinois Governors are in jail? How many Representatives are in jail?

IL is corrupt. That is why it is broke.

* major newspapers *surely* have had to replace their screaming 20-pt headline stories about Trump hitting a reef, "voter backlash", etc. for tomorrow

* Handel's election-day vote margin was 16% - this ridiculous "early voting" and various other abominations really should be in the sights for the GOP on the state level (yes, far-fetched, esp. when the "press" and the Dems go ballistic about "vote suppression", and the GOP meekly apologizes and backs off)

Whatever the final results tonight, I think we can all agree with Bill Wynn that Handel's win comes despite many unforced errors, and that Trump is his own worst enemy. (!!!)

I would think so. There are far more of them (at least potential Morons, or Morons in spirit) than you might realize, given that EVERY county outside of the Chicago metro area, the St Louis Metro East, and a couple of big university communities, voted for Trump, some by margins of 70-30 or greater. Even the county that contains Springfield, the state capital, voted for Trump (51.6% to 42.2%).
