@Josephcdickerson you mean posting memes of biden confused and falling is not moving voters?
@Josephcdickerson if I hadn’t been committed to voting for Walker, I too might have caved to the incessant attack ads in Georgia. ALL commercials I saw presented the holiness of Reverend Warnock, the evil of Walker wanting to kill his wife, and vast numbers of “conservative Republicans” who could never vote for such a monster as Walker when the Reverend has only done such wonderful things for Georgia. All the Spanish adds even stated “don’t vote for evil” attacking Walker. He had no chance.
Finally, anyone saying that Trump is to "blame" for these close losses... Well, the voters of the states selected the candidates for the GOP. Trump endorsed.
I'm now very concerned about 2024. GA is not turning purple, BUT it is very much like the rest of the country: Red areas getting redder, blue areas getting bluer.
And LOTS of people live in the blue areas.
If the GOP does not AGGRESSIVELY invest in a solid GOTV process/tech then we are in trouble.
Quick postmortem on GA Senate race.
- Dems flooded the zone with TV & youtube ads, many directing people to signup at iwillvote.com (which helped microtargeting and GOTV efforts)
- The media covered themselves in glory once more, burying stories that hurt Warnock
- Most of the NRSC ads were "stop the recklesss spending" boilerplate that gave no reasons to vote FOR Walker
- Dems GOTV and early voting efforts focused on Fulton, DeKalb, and Gwinnett. They worked.
- Walker was not a good candidate
AWW. Such sad news.
A great opportunity for the laid off to learn how to code.

Today's Star Trek toot.
And it REALLY REALLY SUCKS.
RIP Kirstie Alley.
She was, of course, Saavik in the best Star Trek film.
She was also a beautiful woman, talented and funny and...
Biden's FEMA to Florida: Fuck off, no more money.
Comparing FEMA's assistance to a red state to previous assistance to blue states paints an interesting picture...
Right now I'm a wondering where the good times have gone
All the things I never loved when they was mine
A hot city and an empty pocket make a man think on
And I've been living low so long
I gotta get back where I belong
So, this almost happened. I kinda wish it did.
