The Travails of the DNC

On the positive side, the DNC decided to support Ossoff in Georgia. I just received an email signed by Tom Perez, asking for a contribution to the campaign.

On the negative side, the only argument that is being advanced is “let’s stick it to Donald [sic]”. Which to me sounds like saying that Ossoff is a shitty cnadidate who stands for nothing whatsoever. I mean, I’m sure it’s not true and he stands for something but the DNC is failing to communicate what it is.

    Did they link you to the candidate’s site?
    I know, I know, most people don’t click on links in emails(link to the candidate’s site).

      Oh my god I clicked that…. he’s an elf! Why would anyone in Georgia want to elect an elf?

        You forget Sessions, El Keebler Elf Norteamericano, held elected office in Georgia, for many years. :p

        Or am I missing what you mean by “elf”?

        • Point taken, there’s no accounting for Georgia tastes (when and where I grew up Georgia was state enemy number one for some weird reason – it was nowhere near the state line or anything).

          Maybe they’re trying to compensate for the Bulldogs…

    • No, there are only links to donation sites.

        With the link I provided to the campaign site, it does have a list of priorities. Do you like what you see? Does anything speak to you? (I realize neither you nor I can vote in a Georgia election but you can get some sense of a candidate by how they choose to present themselves.)

        For example this speaks to me:
        Jon will go to work to ensure that health insurance premiums don’t cripple small businesses or force them to lay off employees.

        • I’m a little disturbed by this: “Jon will promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education for Georgia’s students and professional education to qualify young Georgians for the workforce after high school.”

          But I understand it’s a popular talking point.

          There is a reader of this blog who is in STEm and who explains very well why this is not a good goal. Maybe he’ll want to comment.

          To me, it looks like he’s a candidate very well tailored to his district. He emphasizes the things in his platform that will appeal to the affluent suburban voters in his area.

    Give these savages an inch and they’ll be rquiring western women to adhere to “modest dress” before you know it.

    This is exactly what the inventor of the piece of garbage known as a burkini wants too.

    • The linked piece easily uses words like “anti-immigrant” and “anti-Muslim” but us incapable of using the word anti-women.

      Imagine if France or whoever imposed a special form of dress on immigrants. Would it be accepted as easily as this barbarity?
