Yeah, the way some white liberals fetishize over Stacey Abrams is downright cringeworthy.
Abrams does great work and I admire her for it, but she is not some magical superhero that white liberals make her out to be. We should not worship politicians.
My hot take is that her power is a tad bit overrated. She's a private citizen. She doesn't wield that much power.
Abrams gets more credit for Dem victories in Georgia than the candidates themselves.

NOW: Georgia @GovKemp is delivering his third State of the State address. Will let you all know if there is anything newsworthy. #gapol… Image
The Governor gets emotional as he pays tribute to Harrison Deal, the Loeffler field organizer who was killed in a car accident. Deal was in a relationship with one of Kemp's three daughters. He referred to Deal as "the son he never had." #gapol
I wonder who he is talking about here: "There are some who want to look to the past, assign blame, settle old scores, and relive and relitigate 2020 [...] Let’s clear the fields and start planting." #gapol

Thomas the Tank Engine. Discuss
Was one of my favorite shows as a kid. Though I liked the earlier version (the version narrated by George Carlin) than the more recent versions
The newer, animated version of the show just isn't like the George Carlin version

We all know that AOC isn't going to primary Schumer, right?
It would be career suicide for her to give up her safe House seat to mount a primary against the Senate Majority Leader.
AOC is not dumb. I'm 100% confident that she knows this.

Honestly not sure how I feel about this
I guess I'll just wait and see who else runs before forming an opinion. Fetterman won't have this race all to himself.

Half of the House Republican caucus has objected to the certification of Arizona's electoral votes.
Can't wait to see how many of the Biden district Republicans voted to object.
Garcia said he would be objecting. I have a feeling that Bacon, Van Duyne and Steel might be objecting too.
