Walker: “Hi, GQP? Herschel Walker here. I’d like to run for Senate as a Republican.”
QUIDIOTS: What are your qualifications?
Walker: “I promoted snake oil that could cure COVID, lied about being a cop, held a gun to my ex-wife’s head, threatened suicide, have secret children out of wedlock, and paid for an abortion.”
QUIDIOTS: Welcome aboard!

To be clear, and using the rational of his Republican Party, Mr. Walker paid to have his child murdered.
I truly do not understand how GA Republicans couldn’t find someone more qualified. Surely they have a deeper bench.
Today’s GOP base LOVES this stuff, just like they loved the infamous bus tape from 2016. Today’s GA Republican base supports Mr. Walker BECAUSE of, not in spite of, these things.
He was a famous football player. He’s black, so they can claim they aren’t racist. He’s a “man’s man”. FWIW, it takes only a moment to learn just how deplorable Mr. Walker is. He is — frankly — a nut job. Total. He has been diagnosed with a serious psychological disorder, he has a long history of violence and abuse (I’ll resist the temptation to tie that to his success on the football field), and he has a long history of misogyny. Oh, and at least four children by at least four different mothers.
When Hillary Clinton characterized a portion of the GOP base as “deplorable”, she was absolutely correct — and that portion has gotten larger since 2016. It’s gotten larger in no small part because the GOP has driven out everyone except the deplorables.
That nut job is going to lose the Republicans an otherwise winnable race – not that I’m complaining of course!
