Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 29, 2020

A moment from the debate between Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and Democrat Jon Ossoff went viral last night ... This time, Ossoff just smoked Perdue on the legal trouble he's had with his business and his response to the COVID-19 pandemic. "It's not just that you're a crook," Ossoff opens, launching into an almost hard-to-watch takedown.

I know what Jon Ossoff is serving for Thanksgiving this year: Perdue Smoked Turkey - fully cooked and ready for carving straight out of the bag.

I wonder what the price is to have a Senator completely sell out his constituents and then lie about it?

Hopefully a Senate seat Danni. I don't think I've ever seen any politician so verbally eviscerated by his opponent as Ossoff did to Perdue - without nary a peek from David in his own defense.

Frankly, if this exchange has wide reach inside Georgia, it portrays someone whom Trump himself would ostracize for showing such obvious weakness from an opponent attacking from the strength of his own character.

The fruits of Stacey Abrams' hard work expanding the electorate in GA may very well be paying dividends right before our gobsmacked eyes.

Perdue Ditches Final Debate Against Ossoff, Will Campaign For Trump Instead

In a statement, Perdue's campaign said that the senator has instead opted to campaign for President Trump that night "for a huge Get-Out-the-Vote rally in Northwest Georgia."

"Bwaaaaak, bwaaaaak, bwaaaak, bwaaaak, bwaaaaaaak!"

At least he's staying true to brand.

"Perdue Ditches Final Debate Against Ossoff"

Of course.

Ossoff had him on the ropes, by telling the truth: Purdue sold stock the day of the intelligence briefing, and is the subject of multiple federal investigations for insider trading.

Quick, someone get his e-mails!!!

Check his stock portfolio and any profit after he was Covid briefed (and moved his stocks in response) is what his bribe and payment for services was.

And the minimum of what his penalty should be.

Did Ossoff follow that up by taking Perdues wife home with him?

Perdue had to cancel the next debate due to treatments he will be receiving in the burn ward.

I watched the video of it, it looked like Perdue was going to cry. You could see "this was a horrible mistake" all over his face.

Republicans are panicking.

When you panick you do stupid things.

Do stupid things and win stupid prizes!

He is a crook but he is in Georgia. They will still find a way to re-elect him.

Candidates should not be able to bag out of debates already scheduled. They should still have the debate with a cardboard cut-out or an empty chair.

Going to his safe space.

I totally agree with this. When Combover Quisling backed out of the second debate, Joe should have been given the time on all the networks to do a town hall with the moderator of his choice. The same should be true for Ossoff. It's earned media that should be given to the candidate with the stones to show up. There should be a penalty for chickening out.

"Candidates should not be able to bag out of debates already scheduled."

And they should be required to name and release any NDAs they hold in force.

College transcripts and tax returns just doesn't cut it anymore.

The picture of Purdue standing there awkwardly looking into the camera as if he's trying to hold in his bowels as Ossoff stripped the skin off him was a sight to behold. Purdue was probably thinking, "Is it too late to follow Isackson out the back door?" This was probably the most brutal, and well-deserved takedown I've ever seen in a political debate, this was better than a "you're no Jack Kennedy" moment because this wasn't a canned line, this was the kind of repudiation takedown that could shift votes by a few percentage points.
