“Claimed to be a cop. Wasn’t. Claimed to be an FBI agent. Wasn’t. Claimed to be high school valedictorian”….you get the idea. It’s Herschel Walker we’re talking about. And neither he — nor any of his multiple personalities — were any of the things that Walker claims to have been.
Herschel Walker is a character out of the movie Idiocracy, there’s no question about that.
Here is Bill Maher “translating for liberal America.”
Walker memorizes as many talking points as he can and then he improvises. The “mist” that cures COVID-19 should have disqualified him from running for office in the first place, but not in America. Not with who we are now.
Maybe Maher is right and the Republicans hate what the Democrats are selling so bad, that they run an epic clown for U.S. senator. The problem in America is that politics has become entertainment and performative jackassery. This is not to our benefit.
Warnock and Walker were tied yesterday, the day of their debate. I cannot imagine that that race could be tied now, after Walker made a flaming ass of himself but again, maybe Maher is right. The more of an ass a Republican makes of himself, the greater the chances of getting elected.
Except it doesn’t seem to be going like that all the time. Ask Sarah Palin. She thought the old magic would hold and down in flames she went.
America may be tired of all this. I pray that we are. Maybe we’re entering a post tea party, post Trump era. Wouldn’t that be nice?
