Tell your Trumpy friends that Walker is a secret Democrat trying to make all the GOP look bad by being so irresponsible and such a pathetic loser. See what happens then.

Violent head trauma seems to be a common ailment for republicans.

For their spouses unfortunately.

The recent issues with Walker have really exposed the GOP for who they are, though. They are going all in, and there are those who are saying, we don't care what he did, all that matters is that he is a republican and not a nasty democrat, and we need to retake the senate.

What slime.

The sad thing is, as Warp12 alluded to, it'll probably work. Most Georgians will vote for anyone with an (R) by their name. That's all it takes.

They didn't in the last Senate election. In fact they lost both of the last 2 Georgia US Senate elections.

You gotta love the cretins the GOP chooses to be government leaders. Let's see, they include a guy who totally lied about his military service. A carpet bagging television puppy killing grifter and a crazy ex football player who had multiple children out of wedlock and despite being anti-choice paid for abortions for his women.

As has been pointed in that thread Christian stayed silent for the two years when it was paying him. Now it's not, he's moved to a state where he's just another untermensch and he is no longer protected by his name and it starts "disgusting" him.

Frankly that term shouldn't be an issue unless the boyos supporting the GQP are even bigger snowflakes than I think they are.

They have no shame:

Quote:
On her (Dana Loesch) radio show, the pro-life host said the race for Warnock’s seat is important above all else – including a single abortion from 2009.

So, does this change anything? Do you want my opinion? You’re listening. Not a damn thing. How many times have I said four very important words. These four words: winning is a virtue. What I’m about to say is in no means a contradiction or a compromise of a principle.

And, please keep in mind that I am concerned about one thing, and one thing only at this point. So, I don’t care if Herschel Walker paid to abort endangered baby eagles. I want control of the Senate.
Quote:
IF true, Walker paid for one broad’s abortion compared to Warnock who wants your tax dollars to pay for EVERY broad’s abortion-as-birth control with no limitations. This isn’t a difficult choice and conservatives shouldn’t look to the left to validate their vote. https://t.co/XS3QugXEgE

This is one hell of a tweet:

Herschel Walker says he has no idea who this woman is who claims she had an abortion at his urging.

We can now reveal, with her permission, that the woman is actually the mother of one of his children. She has a lot to say:

To be fair, given Walker's brain damage, there is a distinct possibility that he has no idea who the mother of his own child is.

Apparently according to Newt Gingrich, it is one of his qualifications in order to be a great GQP senator along with being a christian... but he never mentioned the other qualification of being willing and grateful to imbibe all the excretions of Trump's nether regions.

Well, there are four different mothers. But...he should know whose abortion he paid for...unless he paid for more than one woman's abortion. Which would not surprise me in the slightest.

Report: Mom of Walker's child says he paid for her abortion
Quote:
A woman who said Herschel Walker paid for her 2009 abortion is the mother of one of his children.... Walker, who has expressed support for a national abortion ban without exceptions, vehemently denied the story, calling the abortion allegation a “flat-out lie,” threatening a lawsuit against the outlet he has yet to file and saying he had no idea who the woman might be.

You are right. If they run away and fail to support their sprogs, and even actively threaten the mothers like Walker did or force them to have abortions because it is "inconvenient", they are not skanks, they are effing arse-wipes.

If you reall want to drive away Republicans, point out the fact that he followed through on his promise to pay for it. A real Christian conservative would have told her he would and ghost her after she gets it done.

That's pretty much the whole GQP at this point. None of them express ideas about policy or solutions. tey just tell you why "the others" are your enemy.

That might work.

Remember, the current leader of the Republicans (Stubby Mcbonespurs) is well known for NOT paying his bills.

Excellent summation. That's why the GOP is primarily based on fear, which is the seed of most hate.

I wonder if he is just basically stupid or if it's the result of all the brain injuries.

I found little on his childhood except that he was obese until about 11 or 12 and had a stutter. He did graduate high school but he was also the hero football player on the HS team. It's no secret that football is king in Georgia and I have no doubt that, as their star player, he would have 'graduated' whether he actually passed his classes or not.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
In his 2008 autobiography, Walker wrote that during his stint in Johnson County High School, he was the Beta Club president (which required average "A" grades) and class valedictorian.[13] In December 2021, Walker's Senate campaign website claimed that he graduated as the valedictorian of the entire high school, but CNN found no evidence for this claim.[13] The claim on Walker's website was later removed and amended to state that Walker graduated high school "top of his class"
He also lied about his college grades:

Quote:
Starting in 2017, Walker has made the claim that he had graduated from University of Georgia "in the top 1% of his class".[13] In fact, he did not graduate, and left college to join the NFL.[19] He did not return to complete his degree.[20][13] In December 2021, Walker's senate campaign website deleted the assertions about his education after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution inquired about it, with Walker acknowledging in a statement that he left the university without graduating to play professional football.[21] Walker later asserted that he never said he graduated from the university.[22]

Can you be more specific? Because he held the press conference, what he said in the press conference, or what he did to require the press conference to be held?

To be fair, given Walker's brain damage, there is a distinct possibility that he has no idea who the mother of his own child is.
I couldn't care less about Walker's medical circumstances. The man is pure filth, as your link corroborates.

Mike Erickson, the Republican running for the Senate in my state also paid for his girlfriend's abortion while proclaiming himself pro-life.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Republican!

I didn't catch who said it because I had CNN on in the background while I was doing chores the other day. The speaker said, "Republicans oppose abortion except in the standard three instances. Rape. Incest. My daughter gets in trouble."

Walker is either getting really bad advice or he's not taking it. Calling the woman a liar is is just plan wrong. Say, we're all sinners. Say, it was a long time ago. Say I'm a different person. Don't call the person a liar. You're just giving the story legs if you call her a liar.
