Those politically aware knew of the latest "we're going to show the world the American people hate Trump" jihad in Georgia's 6th District congressional seat.
As expected, the dem show horse who brought nothing to the table but who drew millions of leftist dollars to be wasted again, lost.
He got the most votes in a primary with 18 or so candidates running... but he failed to get the required 50% needed to win outright and the majority vote went to the combined GOP slate of candidates.
So, a democrat kid with no discernible background ran for Congress (not unlike the clueless moron "representing" US in Congress now, come to think of it) in a GOP district and he failed to win when he had to win.
And unless the woman representing the GOP, Karen Handel, turns out to be a secret axe-murderer, he's also going to lose in the general.
Will the left waste even more millions on this guy?
Here's the thing: if you're going to keep campaigning like your middle name is Obama, you are not going to make a great many inroads into traditionally conservative districts, areas or states.
America has had a taste of Venezuelan socialism.
The left needs new ideas and new candidates to sell them. They need to dump the tired old whack jobs that are the face of their party... the Pelosis, the Waters, the Schumers... the fringe-left haters clogging up a political system tailor-made to abuse.
I freely admit that the loser in this particular race isn't just the young man they sacrificed for their hatred or the fringe-left hater-cash that backed him... for he is just a symptom of the greater disease.
It's the American people.
This is a battle of ideas... and competence.
Insanity has a variety of definitions. Not the least of which is the idea that repeating the same thing, over and over, will ultimately lead to a different outcome.
In the business world, innovation is the key to survival.
New ideas, new processes, new directions... That's why Amazon is a monster and Sears is teetering on the brink.
The same has to be said for politics.
Donald Trump is President not because he campaigned according to the "rules" or because he listened to the naysayers who almost uniformly said he would first... never become the GOP nominee and then... never become president. Most everything he did broke the rules, was new or involved tap-dancing on multiple 3rd rails of politics that terrified the Establishment.
He did not get the job because he mouthed establishment talking points.
He got the job because the people were angry and the people felt like no one was listening and he made it clear that he was listening.
Not unlike our legislative and county government "representation" here, come to think of it; where almost none of them care what we think or what we want... and they only listen to those special interests who own them.
What the democrats do at this point is, of course, up to them.
But unless they can get a grip on reality and get rid of their time-worn, failed programs that they repeat like little robotic leftists, they are dooming themselves into oblivion... not unlike the Whigs and the Tories.
And this is true at all levels... including here locally. While most of government is leftist around here, those same democrats (Boldt, Stewart, Olson, Blom-inidiot, Rivers, Wilson, Harris and Vick) market themselves as GOP.
They, at least, are paying lip service to the idea that they aren't what their voting record... obviously the only thing that really matters... clearly indicates they are.
For the most part, they ran on non-ideas, promised nothing and are busily doing what they can to hurt us as badly as Obama... but like the Obama-inspired effort of Hillary, we are looking at perhaps different outcomes when their voting records are made clear. They did that because, in part, they hate to be held accountable for their pledges.
Like I've been holding that empty suited Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers accountable for her lies to get elected.
And that's when new candidates can take them out.
That typically won't help the democrats that much, however, since most of them are limited to running like they're all in downtown Seattle.
The end result?
The same as the democrat efforts in Kansas and Georgia.
The closer the democrats insist on making us a version of Venezuela, the less likely they are to win.
The more hatred they express... the more riots they remain silent on... the more they engage in class warfare... the more they demand that we ignore our immigration laws and open the border... the less likely they are to win.
And until they come to grips that their efforts to drag this country to the left have failed... the more they're going to lose.
