OSSOFF TRUMP-SLAYER FALLS...

Miss Marple

I was going to go to bed early, but I cannot do so until I see that Karen Handel has conclusively won.

I like these little reminders of November 8.

Janet the expert 🚬

on reddit - "Best part? California just added tens of millions to Georgia's economy. lol"

Miss Marple

CNN has projected Handel the winner.

Ta-da!!

THIS after showing Ossoff leading all evening.

Bwahahaha!

Congrats to Georgia locals who scarfed up that $50 million from the idiot dems!!

narciso

50 million, how much was ossoffs per vote cost?

We shall see how she does it's a little always s bridesmaids never a bride with handel.

rse

mm-you can go to bed. dekalb is in.

it would be like staying awake to see how manhattan votes at this point. The demographics of what is out are well known.

Miss Marple:

Melania is certainly a beautiful woman, but to paraphrase my grandmother, "A bit too tight for the parlor, my dear." I have a feeling that she's standing up when she inspects her appearance in the mirror, and perhaps never checks out what her outfits look like when she's sitting down -- a mistake a lot of women make.

rse

This is maggie haberman of nyt just now--

The Democrats will probably wake up tomorrow without having won a single special election since the year of “resistance” hashtags began.

Miss Marple

JM Hanes,

Possibly you are right.

However, at her age I would never have worn a sleeveless sheath. No way, no how.

So, I am not upset.

Plus, there might be a hidden motive in the fit.

There are all those Reddit boys. LOL!

Chest Pains

Too....much....winning...

hrtshpdbox

Associated Press calls it for Handel.

Miss Marple

Dave (in MA),

Oh, thank you for that!!!

Bwahahaha!

Captain Hate

I love it! The CNN talking heads are all stuttering.

Auditioning for NPR?

DebinGA

lol, Dave

And thanks Momto2. That puppy pic has given me a jolt of "happy" every time I see it.

narciso

Give them 120,000 voters assume half the money went to ossoffs, instead of 3/4. This is ridiculous.

Threadkiller

Where is the controversial Melania photo?

Momto2

Dave - that is too great! @10:10

Anyone else think Karen Handel looks like the actress from Justified and The Americans? (Margo Martingale)


Miss Marple

From President Trump's Facebook:

Congratulations to Karen Handel on a GREAT win in Georgia! The Democrats blew it again (0-4). Total disarray. Republicans are stronger than ever before! #MAGA

DNC Perez

Dear Suckers,

Thanks for the cash!

Momto2

Oh, thanks, Deb! She has brought lots of sunshine into our lives! She makes my husband smile which is her most important job.

Captain Hate

The Arlen Specter of informed political commentary..

Californians spent money as effectively in Georgia as Governor Choo Choo does in state.

Anybody tired of winning yet?

Frau Rechtsverdreher

Master Ossoff can now go back to rubbing his girlfriend's bunions. or whatever.

$250 a vote...hahahahahahahaha

Threadkiller

Thanks, Deb.

I don't think her cans to gut ratio suffered one bit despite a couple folds in the dress.

#Hawt

The reddit kids are all right.

JFK Assoff

No refunds!

daddy

Am loving watching CNN and David Axelrod in particular, specifically because he just said that this Handel Election is great for Dems considering how large was the turnout for the Dem loser, Ossoff.

CNN follows that insane lead by going into denial by saying that this was not a referendum on President Trump.

Winning

Dave (in MA)

More fun @ CNN's expense,

Momto2

So perfect!!


On Twitter
Ben Jacobs:
Brief and scattered shouts of "not my congresswoman" at the Ossoff event

Then David Martosko tweets back:

Well, if #Ossoff were saying it, he wouldn't be lying

Bhaaaaaaaa!

DebinGA

GA #1 in feature film productions ... $7B a year.

narciso

Whereas meagain has really underperformed again I don't know why she thought that audience would be interested in Alex Jones, then again they may have the same management consultants that came up with rock center.

Can you imagine how big was the gravy train on that campaign.

DebinGA

CNN follows that insane lead by going into denial by saying that this was not a referendum on President Trump.

Well, it certainly wasn't a referendum on the personality impaired Karen Handel. And headquartered in Atlanta CNN knows it.

Momto2

Deb - they are shooting the next Avengers movie now at the studio where my daughter works! Georgia was very smart to give the tax incentives to the movie industry.

narciso

Ben Jacobs it's like he was pile driven n
again? Chalian who was charlie Gibson's editor if memory serves looks like a trout with a hook in his mouth.

Momto2

You know good and well if he had won the would be shouting it from the rooftops that it was a slam to President Trump! They are sooooo duplicitous it's not even funny!

Ralph Maddow blames the weather.

daddy

Current CNN talking Head David Chalian says that "Ossoff's campaign was never a campaign that was going after President Trump."

If you buy that I have a Viking poop to sell you from a midden in 1117 AD.

Common man

I am reminded that someone said I would become sick of winning due to winning so often. Ain't happened yet.

And for the troll, suck it double douchebag. Total insanity to spend that much cash and get beat worse that Clinton did in the district. Your party is ridiculous but above all losers...

Captain Hate

Momto2, Darby looks so cute.

She makes my husband smile which is her most important job.

Indeed. Bless you and your husband, Momto2.

Hush don't tell them about the weather dominator oops. Yes hi Joe taught me to be skeptical of Geraldo even when they didn't even use his real name,

Captain Hate

Will Ralph ever have a reason to smirk again?

Momto2

Congrats Democrats for the most expensive congressional loss in history~

daddy

CNN's John King just spoke for 4 minutes solid but only in the last 10 seconds did he say the following:"Republicans are happy tonight."

He spoke solid for a full 4 minutes saying everything except that for the 1st 4 minutes.

Love how Larry Sabato's bullshit comments were cut short by Karen Handel's breaking live victory speech. Bummer:( Larry Sabato did not get a chance to finish telling me why this was not a legitimate victory for the Repubs.

Dave (in MA)

Well, Ralph's been winning the ratings since FNC SHITCANNED™ O'Reilly and MeAgain quit.

jimmyk

NATE SILVER 9:23 PM
If we wind up with Handel winning by like 2 points and Norman winning by about 4 points, that’s by no means the worst outcome for Democrats.

The NYT projects Handel winning by 4 points now. Nate didn't shift the goal posts far enough.

daddy

Anyone know how much money the Dem's blew on this losing contest?

Round figures will suffice:)

narciso

Ues that's a mystery Maddie is like a monotone rant delivered sans home or normal emotion. Then again the fox show is a quixotic exercise on its own.

DebinGA

I wonder if there was a "How stupid do they think we are?" reaction from District 6 voters? Ossoff didn't live in District 6, and his claim to fame was working in the office of Hank "I'm concerned that many Marines might cause Guam to tip over" (demonstrating the meaning of "tipping over" with his hands) Johnson. How insulting for Georgians for Dems to think putting a "D" in front of such a third-rate candidate would suffice.

daddy

Gotta post this for levity:

Right Click!

Bubarooni

I read on RCP yesterday that it was nip and tuck with Handel sneaking ahead by .2%.

I'm looking at the TV screen right now and Handel's won by 6%. 53 vs 47.

I'm math challenged but, were the polls off by a factor of 30?

What an easy job!

I need to get into the polling business because it's gotta be a pretty low bar to get in.

I'd be sh*tcanned in my job for that kinda performance.

I'm hearing the Dems spent $250/vote on Ossof. Rs spent $30/vote on Handel.

Anyone catch Handel's acceptance speech? Heard it was pretty good.

DebinGA

Handel winning by 5 pts. or more would be huge.

She also was on The West Wing. I wondered where I had seen her before. Thanks!

CNN's Dana Bash in 400 words says that the fact that the Republican did not lose means something but she is not certain what it means except that Karen Handel is a woman. (My head hurt trying to decipher what Dana Bash thinks---she doesn't.)

David Axelrod says Ossoff would have won in the primary if the Repubs wouldn't have had so many good candidates in the Repub Primary. He says we are polarized. He says the Dems need to do a better job in finding candidates. He says Ossoff was not the right guy.

Gloria Borger says the Dems job got tougher tonight in finding better candidates---she cannot figure out why Nancy Pelosi is such an inviting target for Republicans. That is a total mystery to her. Dumb as a rock. She thinks the Dem's may need a different message than "Trump is terrible."

Some talking head guy says the Dem's have no messages and they need actual victories.

Host Don Lemon is saying the Rep's did not win as strongly as they should have won.

I am loving watching CNN. Please bring on David Gergen.

On my TV, anyway, O'Reilly's 8 o'clock slot became Tucker Carlson's.

Another good bidness school paper topic would be nepotism at Fox completely trashing a winning brand. Speaking of which, I trust Shemp and Chris Wallace are having a bad night.

The problem is in part averaged the junk polls like gristle into the sausage.

Yes they are still on ivanova And grishenko.

Days Without Winning

Both SC and GA results hint that Trump's total failure to govern as a populist is weakening his map-scrambling effect.


Jeffrey on FB asks - What does this even mean?

Dave (in MA)

Charles Glasser, at Insty: "NAPKIN MATH: Ossoff raised $23.6 million to make a symbolic run against President Trump, most of it from Marin County, California and Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. Running the numbers, Democrats might have been better off considering that same amount would have bought 855,072 school lunches (at $2.76 each); 236,000 elementary school textbooks (at $100 each) or even 956 Priuses (at $24,685 each)."

Without Theo or the hall monitor, we may never know.

the FUX news bottom ticker said Handel fended off an UPSET bid by OSSOFF.

Utter horse shit and fake news. Handel was the underdog not Tossoff.

narciso

This is ivanova, actually skorupco I though was Italian, she's actually from nialystok poland

Miss Marple

I am filled with glee. Yes, I know I should be humble, but I cannot help it.

All of that money, all of the Russia stuff, all of the anti-Trump demonstrations, and a mediocre candidate and we STILL won!

Hahahahaha!

Captain Hate

Oh my, another frowny face for Meeka tomorrow.

daddy

BBC is focusing on the amounts of money spent in the contest. They apparently do not give a damn for the Rep's win. That is evident. No "Congratulations President Trump", "Congratulations Repubs' Congratulations Karen Handel. Instead the talking heads are entirely focused in telling us how hard this makes the Democrats job of overturning the Trump Agenda.

They are not for the other side, they are the other side.

narciso

Yes I admit an excuse to link skorupco who was also in the reing of fire film about dragon's with Christian bale

Bubarooni

"Please bring on David Gergen."

Yep. That's why I'm still tuned in.

It'd be grand!

Handel averted a humiliating upset for Republicans in a suburban Atlanta seat they have held for nearly 40 years !

(how about that for spinning?)

Clarice Feldman

Nytol..where would we be without talking heads?

daddy

Back on CNN Kiersten Powers says that Ossoff did not go dirty enough in the campaign whereas Handel went dirty by targeting Nancy Pelosi etc, so since Ossoff stayed principled and lost and stayed above the fray he lost and Kiersten says the Dem's need to be tougher in future and learn from this.

Now Kiersten is saying that if you cannot win college educated Republican voters, then you can't rely on winning non-college educated Republican voters, since college educated Republican voters should in her view be voting Dem but they didn't vote for Ossoff.

Captain Hate

That's David Rodham Gergen (h/t Rush) or The Cat in the Hat (h/t Laura Ingraham).

Momto2

I do hope someone posts some of the TV election coverage on YouTube. Since I don't watch TV but I love seeing their little hopes all dashed and trampled!

Janet the expert 🚬

Democrats -
Act out beheading & stabbing their political opponents.

Stand side-by-side with a business that was caught selling baby eyes & scalps for cash.

Try to shoot & kill their political opponents.

Who in their right mind would align themselves with violent,loser Democrats? What an awful political party.

narciso

That created it's own singularity,

Well they can't really talk about North Korea or syria, the two minute hate around Finchley park seems to have passed.

Yeah...that's the Democrat's problem. They don't go dirty enough.

Trying to KILL Republicans isn't dirty enough.
