With almost all the vote counted, the results are are pretty unanimous..the Republicans win Georgia 6 and Karen Handel has beaten Jon ‘Pajama Boy’ Ossof like a gong. Even CNN, wiping the tears from their eyes has called it for the Republicans.
At this point, Karen Handel is ahead by five points, 52.5% to Ossof’s 47.5%. I guess that’s all $25 million that was almost entirely out of state money buys a left wing Democrat in Georgia.
As I predicted, Ossof’s lack of any relevant experience and the label of ‘carpetbagger’ that stuck to him because of all the out of state money and Ossof’s not even living in the district hurt him.
To add insult to injury, the Republicans also won the seat in South Carolina 5.
Here’s another prediction from the link above :
But here’s a prediction I feel perfectly OK making. If Ossof manages to eke out a win, the Democrats and their media will celebrate it as if the Messiah had arrived. If he loses, they will spin like tops telling everyone how unimportant it is.
I know this because this is exactly how they behaved in the Kansas and Montana special elections, both of which they were confident of winning and were viewing as ‘resistance’ against Trump. Remember when they lost, and lost handily? Suddenly neither of these races were deemed important anymore. Move along, nothing to see here.
There’s a prediction you can take to the bank.
Look at the media in the next few days and see if I’m not right.
Oh, and one more thing:
BWah Hah hah hah hah hah hah hah!
UPDATE: The Dem Media is already starting to spin this. It’s already starting. From Dave Wasserman at .538 :
Among the questions I can already hear Democrats asking tomorrow: Why didn’t Ossoff take the fight to Trump in his ads? And why didn’t he take a sledgehammer to the AHCA? Why did he run such a bland campaign? But I think a better explanation might be: After over $30 million in pro-Ossoff/anti-Handel ads, there is such a thing as Ossoff fatigue.
Before, Jon Ossoff was the Trump Slayer, a prog Hero. Now he’s a scapegoat.
