Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 11, 2022

GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker was roundly criticized Monday for his argument against climate legislation like the Green New Deal. Walker said during a campaign stop in Hall County, Georgia on Saturday that such billion-dollar laws would indirectly reward China and other major polluters. He said, under the Green New Deal, clean U.S. air would ultimately be sent to China and dirty Chinese air would then contaminate American skies.

This is simply embarrassing on more levels than I can count. And today's Georgia GOP primary voters thinks that this type of intellect should represent them in the U.S. Senate over Raphael Warnock?

Heaven help this republic. Please.

Imagine the hubris and cynicism it took to foist this guy on voters.

If the Hamburgler was a republican they would run him. They don't care about ideas or leadership... it is all about the win/grift.

Perfect description of Walker and many of the crazy GOP Senate nominees:

"Senate Republicans were counting their chickens, then their eggs hatched"

Walker is a Republican's wet dream of a black candidate, one capable of drawing guffaws by playing the full Christy's Minstrels character roster, including Brothers Bones and Tambo, Mr. Interlocutor, and the wildly inappropriate (in terms of today's norms) (but totally on-point for this guy) yammering stump speaker Zip ----.

He makes Sporkfoot look like a genius.

Congrats GOP...you wanted candidates that sound just like you...this is the result. You built this.

These are the type of candidates that your party are courting... dumb as a brick, fealty to Dotard, ammo sexual, anti gay, anti trans, authoritarian, corrupt, criminal, compulsive liar, etc. The list goes on and on.

When the party platform is, essentially, whatever the twice-impeached, defeated, disgraced, seditious former guy says it is is what it is; when mobbing the Capitol, braying for the murder of the veep while beating police senseless is officially endorsed by the party's ruling body as "legitimate political protest" ... well, there's always cosplaying to entertain the gormless yokels that form "the base." Walker is purpose-built for that. And what's more, he'll laugh along with you while you're laughing at him. Ah, well, tumarrah's anitha day.

The RNC didn't describe the attempt to overthrow democratic norms "legitimate political protest." My bad. They called that directed mob violence "legitimate political discourse."

As if we needed any more proof, Herschel Walker's candidacy confirms there are no ends to the depth and width of Republican stupidity and gullibility.

Holy Schmidt, we have sunk to such a level of "Low." Does ANY Republican on this board think this man is qualified for the Senate? And please, no effing Biden deflections, this thread is about HERSCHEL WALKER, the guy who lives in Texas.

Walker speaks Gibberish so the R base will understand him.

They want their elected officials like their base-stupid and gullible.

I think the mistake is thinking that they want anything more than a reliable R vote and somebody else they can point to so they can deflect from their racism.

You'd think he wouldn't have a chance due to his pigmentation problem.

The GOP is going to elect this guy?

From one of the tweets in the sub-summary...

..."We, in America, have some of the cleanest air and cleanest water of anybody in the world," he told a group of supporters. ...

So he seems to be indirectly thanking the Democrats for supporting the work of the EPA, and criticizing the Republicans for trying their best to prevent the EPA from keeping our air and water clean.

Herschel "CTE" Walker is their unofficial spokesman.

Ok, so now Liberals have redefined the word gibberish. Let's officially write the new definition down...

gibberish
[jib(')riSH]
NOUN
1. unintelligible or meaningless speech or writing; nonsense:
"he talks gibberish"

2. When someone from a party that isn't Democrat says anything that doesn't agree with Liberal ideology.

We have to make sure we write these down just to be able to keep up with Dems, and because Dems change definitions daily.

Hey, HERSCHEL. How's the head?

This is the reason I can no longer watch football. Every time a guy gets hit hard, I always wonder about the long-term repercussions. Will he turn out like Head Injury Hershel or Jim McMahon? Will he turn into a homicidal maniac, a threat to society, or die by his own and? I see the hell Mongo McMichael and Steve Gleason are going through, dying with ALS and know that it is more prevalent in the football community, as one of the common risk factors is concussion. After Warnock wins in November, somebody needs to get Hershel into long-term care.

Maybe Georgia voters think they needed an MTG counterpart in the Senate?

If our air was being pushed over to China wouldn't that then push their dirty air westward towards Europe and not back over this way?

His stupidity and praise of your cult leader might be enough to get your cult to overlook his skin color.

More like - when ANYONE says anything that doesn't agree with REALITY. Or when it's just word salad that proves they can't form a coherent thought.

What was your opinion when herschel walker said he had a special mist that would spray out of a doorway and kill all covid virus when you pass through it?

I would like Scummy to explain what he was saying, if he says that is not gibberish. Of course the Putin Pedophile will not respond.

Run and hide just like the Bunker Bitch you worship.
