Ah poor Perdue, should have debated Jon and made a splash when you had a chance.

Having an excuse for going into hiding, other than terminal stupidity and corruption, is a good plan for him.

Ah, I get it, a reckless conservative! Or, a chicken shit! Or, both.

When going into quarantine is your best campaign strategy…

It may be the only strategy he has left.

Kabuki Alert! Okay. Now I’m almost positive that Hawley is grandstanding. Probably an oral objection from the floor with no written objection.

Purdue is a loathsome coward. He is also lazy. I wouldn’t put it past him to hideout the rest of the race and let his paid advertising do all the talking. Neither Purdue nor Loeffler has a compelling reason to be a Senator beyond gaining information to help them grow their portfolios.

So, Hawley was too chicken sh*t to face questioning? Quelle surprise!

When faking COVID exposure is the best way to improve your internal polls, you know you’re in deep Perdoodoo.

Hawley began his 2024 presidential run with this cheap trick. McConnell’s hateful but even he can see the obvious motivation.

If Perdue is following CDC guidelines, he’ll be in quarantine until January 9—meaning he’ll miss the certification of the EC vote, and the remainder of the current Congress.

And he’ll miss the Trump rally on Monday in Dalton, and can’t troll for votes anywhere in GA.

What’s next: Hawley has no plans to back down from his decision to object to the certification of the electoral votes — a ploy destined to fail on Jan. 6.

Can Hawley withstand the heat AND a side order of facts? Probably need an antigas capsule afterward.

The senator was tested “regularly” for the virus, according to the campaign, and “the team will continue to follow CDC guidelines.”

Have the reactionaries fetishized testing or something?
Like with Donnie, somehow, they think the more it’s done, the less likely they are to get the 'rona, regardless of what their other behaviors are. (ed.)
Apparently, this totem survived Mango Mussolini’s trip to the hospital.
