The Morning Briefing: The Idiocy of Republicans Boycotting GA Runoffs Has to Stop

Don’t Be Those Republicans

Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Tacos taste just as good today as they do on Tuesdays. Just sayin’.


Well here we go. I wasn’t sure I wanted to delve into this hot mess but it’s getting kind of ridiculous. This post-election stuff has been annoyingly polarizing here on the conservative side of the aisle. Nuance has been thrown right the hell out of the window and everybody is full of “My way or the highway!” People complain no matter which position I take on anything but I’ve always stuck with my own counsel on matters like this.

As I’ve mentioned many a time, this ain’t my first rodeo. I’ve been a conservative political activist for thirty-six years. Put bluntly and egotistically: I greatly value my own opinion.

I could pretend that I want to be diplomatic about all that is going on but the things that are irritating me are REALLY irritating me.

When I first read that Republicans in Georgia were SERIOUSLY FREAKING THINKING of not voting in the Senate runoff elections I thought I might need a field sobriety test, a concussion examination, or both. There was no way that otherwise sensible people could be participating in a “cut off the nose to spite the face” mass delusion, was there?

I began thinking that there had to be some nefarious Democrats behind this. Stacey wrote a post yesterday that confirmed that that’s partially true.

Then I read about this bit of nonsense over on our sister site RedState:


Maybe stick to the lawyering and stay out of the politics.

Look, I can be a big supporter of President Trump and want him to continue this fight, but it doesn’t mean I have to be a fan of everyone surrounding him. Rallying Republicans to make a point by pissing away the Senate majority is monumentally ignorant.

I’m not alone among people with actual activism experience who feel this way. My old friend (and colleague, which is still weird to say) Kurt Schlichter was hitting the subject hard on Twitter last night:

He had a lot more to say on that. Go read the thread.

The Republicans I know personally in Georgia aren’t a part of this madness, thankfully. I’d like to think that most Republicans in the state aren’t and that what the rest of us are seeing is a leftmedia attempt to sabotage the GOP. Sidney Powell didn’t help that. I’m still waiting for her damn Kraken to show up, so my patience with her is wearing thin.

Despite the myriad suspicious irregularities that are showing up in Georgia, the Republicans are still in a good position to win one, if not both, of these runoff elections. Unless they go full paste-eater and do something like deciding not to vote because feelings and reasons and stuff.


Fighting to further expose the fraud and fighting to win the runoff elections aren’t mutually exclusive. Everything doesn’t have to be a black or white Twitter throwdown.

No good can come of either one of these Democrats getting into the United States Senate.

So don’t let them.
