Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Democrats Beto O'Rourke and Stacey Abrams were mocked Tuesday night after their losses to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, respectively. O'Rourke, the former congressman who became a media darling during his 2018 campaign to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., has now lost races for the Senate, presidency, and governorship all within the past four years. Abrams, who argued without evidence that her 2018 election loss to Kemp was illegitimate, was rejected by the voters of Georgia by a wider margin in the 2022 rematch. O'Rourke and Abrams were dubbed "superstar losers" in The Atlantic last week for being "among the country's best-known political figures" who "have become so well known not by winning big elections but by losing them."

Georgia, the penal colony created as a buffer to Spain in saint Augustine, was the -------- of English colonization and it's current people descended from the worst that come to the new world

I'm other words, the other colony's shipped the dregs of their respective settlements to Georgia.

Georgia doesn't rate as a benchmark on anything

It's not as long as you the candidate can pull their head out of their own ass first. Beto could have run on inflation and immigration reforms. He chose to instead campaign on gun control. He ran the same campaign that already lost to Ted Cruz.
