Herschel Walker will win over Warnock in nasty Georgia Senate race
To my surprise, the Georgia Senator race is rapidly becoming the personally man nastiest race in the entire country. On the one hand, you have Senator Warnock, who is a very radical Democrat, knows he can’t win the election on issues. So he’s distracted to try to destroy Herschel Walker personally. On the other hand, you have Walker now responding by finding a police body cam of Senator Warnock’s first wife, saying some pretty miserable things about Warnock. All of this is a reflection of how really intense the stakes are in the Georgia Senator race. I think it’s pretty clear that when the left can’t win on arguments, they try to destroy people. They did that with Judge Bork way back in the Reagan era, when he was nominated for the Supreme Court. And they just literally lied about him to drive him out of consideration. A few years later, they had the same challenge with Clarence Thomas. The country looked at the evidence decided that in fact, it was the left that was lying. And Clarence Thomas was believed by a vast majority of Americans and became a justice. They came back into it again to Cavanaugh, when he was nominated to be a justice on the Supreme Court. And it was a really nasty, really personal assault, trying to destroy him. And of course, President Trump has seen nothing for the last six years, except lies. The entire Russian hoax was a lie, attack after attack after attack. And now Herschel Walker is having the same experience. He’s had problems in his life. But the truth is, he’s admitted he wrote an entire book on mental health issues. He’s given over 480 speeches to military groups around the world, talking about PTSD and the challenges of mental health. He’s admitted that his own life, he’s had problems. He’s also run a very issue oriented campaign, emphasizing how big the differences. Warnock is a very radical left wing Democrat, who is well to the left of Biden, probably close to where AOC is certainly to the left of Bernie Sanders, and Warnock knows, than the straight on choice about values at a time when the price of food is going up 13 and a half percent, when gasoline is going back up, when the inflation rate is eating up family’s incomes, at a time when crime in Atlanta is actually as big as crime in Chicago on a per capita basis. Warren it knows in a straight election, based on issues, he’s gone. And so this has become, I think, the most personal and the nastiest senatorial race in the entire country. And my personal hunch is that in the end, Herschel Walker will win, but it will not be pretty and it will be sad for the country that we had to descend generate into this kind of a campaign.
