Check out the screen shot of the CNN anchor desk Tuesday night as the election returns were coming in from Georgia.
These four Democrat hacks couldn’t have looked any more devastated if they had simultaneously learned that someone had just run over their new puppies — and that the driver was a grinning Donald Trump in a pickup truck with a roof rack that said MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
What a terrible night for the alt-left very fake news media and their wholly owned subsidiary, the Democratic Party.
They were confiscating belts and shoelaces yesterday at CNN and MSNBC. Grief counselors were brought in at the New York Times and Washington Post. Morning Joe was Mourning Joe.
A week ago, when the Democrats were positive they would win, GA-06 was going to be a national referendum on Trumpism.
Now that their pajama boy carpetbagger candidate has lost, not so much.
The best inside dope in Politico yesterday was this: “Let’s be clear, something ain’t working for Democrats, party insiders privately tell us.”
Jon Ossoff, the loser, didn’t even live in the district. He’s a 30-year-old “filmmaker,” which means he’s unemployed. Still, cashing in on Trump Derangement Syndrome, he raised more money than any other Congressional candidate in American history — $40 million. And when it was over, Ossoff had fewer votes than the losing Democrat last November, who spent $1,000.
“We showed them,” Ossoff said in his concession speech, “what courage and kindness and humility are capable of.”
Did he say kindness? Last Thursday, neighbors of the winning Republican candidate, Karen Handel, found envelopes of white powder in their mailboxes, along with obscene notes.
And by the way, GA-06 is not one of those Dixiecrat districts. It’s the Atlanta suburbs, full of professionals from the North, transplants who work in the skyscrapers and corporate headquarters in downtown Atlanta. Trump carried the district by 1.5 percent, Handel by 4 percent. Yet somehow the Democrats are claiming moral victory.
And then there was Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. She brought up the torrential rain in the district during voting hours.
“If there was a turnout effect from the bad weather today in the district, does that have any partisan implications?”
Only if it just rained on Democrats, Rachel. But we know what Rachel was really getting at with her precipitation theory — that the Russkies must have seeded the clouds. It was Vladimir Putin, at the behest of Trumpsky. Yeah, that’s the ticket …
Cue the old Brook Benton song:
“It’s a rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia. I believe it’s rainin’ all over the world.”
Only if you’re a snowflake Democrat.
