Ossoff has a Master's Degree from the London School of Economics (one of the most difficult in the world) and wrote his thesis on trade relations between China and the United States.

Snak calls him "pajama boy" and says he never accomplished anything.  That says a lot about Snak.

People who have inflated egos but know they haven't accomplished much have a habit of belittling the accomplishments of others. It's the only way they can 'maintain' their self-image.

It's a classic example of an inferiority complex.

I don't think he will win in the runoff unless he can persuade some independents and Repubs to crossover.  

Which is why I contend the more Trump tries to inject himself into this thing the more it helps Ossoff. It's a decidedly pro republican district but not necessarily a Trump one. Where Romney and McCain took the district by 20+ each Trump barely squeaked it out over the Hildabeast herself.

These aren't your typical angry blue collar Repubs that really make up the core of his base. Demographiclly speaking they actually might have more in common with their affluent liberal adversaries in the Northeast. A disporotionatly high number of Masters degrees in this district and while so many have struggled elsewhere they been doing quite well, radical change just isn't as appealing when your already on top. To put it short, this is the establishment's base.

Instead if I'm Handal's team, I have her smile and thank the president then usher him the heII out of my district as soon as the photo opportunities is finished. Make this about conservative values versus Liberal values and how Nancy Pelosi wants access to thier children so she can eat them and she'll do quite well. 

Alternatively Trump can keep bombing stuff cause establishment types liberal or conservative eat that up.

It will be interesting to see the results.  It's in two months, a lot can happen in two months, politically speaking.

The fairy tale that a college degree means something is just that, A fairy tale. Get out of academia and go to work, create a company, employee people, write the checks for your employees, invent something. A college degree is a beginning and doesn't mean you've done anything YET. Also, being a politician, begging for money, lying about your stances to earn a vote, then pocketing money behind the scenes is the Politician way these days. This Pajama Boy was an aid to the dumbest politician in the SouthEast. Old Hank thinks continents are gonna tip over if their too many troops on it. What a flake this guy is and he doesn't even LIVE IN THE DISTRICT he represents. 

Bottom line - Pajama boy with his advanced degree from London doesn't even own a home and he's close to 30. Tells me a lot.

There are No Moral victories so this creep goes down in 2 months.

Yep.  Liars are gonna lie.

He also thinks that Trump is qualified to be president despite zero experience and railed endlessly about Obama (and now Ossoff's) lack of experience.  Hypocrite.

Wait is Ossoff triggering DH? :lol: 

He came close to winning a red district following a 20% swing in the race in Kansas and polls showing that Quist has a very good chance of winning the Montana seat. Bluster is the only way he knows how to cope with worry.

I was going to propose a drinking game for how many times "pajama boy" is said in this thread, but I'm not into getting blackout drunk.

Seems like Georgia Republicans are very worried about the upcoming runoff:

On Thursday, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law filed a complaint in the federal district court in Atlanta, arguing that the state is violating the National Voter Registration Act. That law sets 30 days before a federal election as the earliest permissible deadline for voter registration. [...]

Ezra Rosenberg, co-director of the voting rights project at the Lawyers’ Committee, argues that under the federal law, Georgia can’t set the registration deadline for the June 20 runoff any earlier than 30 days before that election ― that is, May 22.

“The case is actually a very, very simple case,” Rosenberg told reporters on a conference call Thursday. “Federal law specifically defines elections as including runoff elections.”

Ossof has next to no chance. Republicans did not even start campaigning there till late and spent about a 3rd of the money. Democrats are just desperate to get anything at this point this has not went well for them so far and will end worse. Do not argue with them over it though let them spend their money and cling to that hope as long as they can. It brings joy to my heart to see these dregs so demoralized.

Pretty sure were she stands on this.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karen_Handel

As Secretary of State, Handel implemented Georgia's voter photo ID law, which requires Georgia voters to show state-issued photo identification prior to casting a ballot in person. Some scholars criticized the law as restrictive to civil liberties by creating economic and bureaucratic barriers to would-be voters, and as unnecessary; a 2012 Atlanta Journal-Constitution investigation "found that state officials 'could not point to a single case of ballot fraud the voter ID law had prevented.'"[14]

Soon after taking office as Georgia Secretary of State, Handel began a project to purge voter rolls.[15] By 2008, more than 50,000 registered Georgia voters had been "flagged" by state officials because of computer mismatches in personal identity information, forcing them to prove their eligibility.[15] Some eligible voters were told that they were "non-citizens" although in fact they were citizens.[15] The project raised fears about voter suppression, and was the subject of a federal lawsuit by the ACLU of Georgia and MALDEF, which accused Handel's office of engaging in a "systematic purging procedure" expressly barred by federal law within 90 days of an elections.[15][16] In 2009, the United States Department of Justice Civil Rights Division ordered a halt to the state's "voter verification" effort (denying it approval under the Voting Rights Act of 1965), determining that "thousands of citizens who are in fact eligible to vote under Georgia law have been flagged" and that the "flawed" program "frequently subjects a disproportionate number of African-American, Asian and/or Hispanic voters to additional, and more importantly, erroneous burdens on the right to register to vote."[16] This marked the first time since the 1990s that the Justice Department had denied approval to a change in Georgia election practice.[16] Handel defended her program, asserting that it was appropriate and necessary.[16] A federal judge in Atlanta later dismissed a lawsuit that had accused Handel's successor, Secretary of State Brian Kemp of illegally bumping Georgia voters off the state's rolls ahead of the 2016 presidential election. In the 21-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Timothy C. Batten Sr. said the state had taken a "reasonable and nondiscriminatory" approach in trying to reach voters who had not cast a ballot within the past 7 years to confirm their addresses.[17]
