You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

If you don’t know who Herschel Walker is, he is a former football running back who played in the National Football League (NFL) for 12 seasons. He is the Donald Trump-endorses Republican nominee in the 2022 United States Senate election in Georgia running against the Democratic incumbent, Raphael Warnock.

Like Trump, Walker’s campaign has been littered with false and misleading claims. He’s lied about being in the military, about his education, about being a cop, about his business ventures, about his charities, and even about how many children he has with different women. He claims he is anti-abortion, but he paid for at least one abortion for one of his girlfriends. He is totally unqualified to serve as a member of the U.S. Senate.

In the midterm elections in Georgia earlier this month, Warnock received 49.4% of the votes (1,943,737) while Walker received 48.5% of the votes (1,907,272). A third-party candidate received 2.1% of the votes (81,278). But because neither Warnock nor Walker received a majority (50%+) of the vote, a runoff election between the two is scheduled for early December. If Democrat Warnock wins, the Democrats will have a 51-49 majority in the Senate. If Walker wins the runoff, the Senate will be split 50-50.

But here’s where it really gets weird. During a stump speech yesterday, Herschel Walker said this:

“I was watching this movie called ‘Fright Night.’ It was about vampires. I don’t know if you know, vampires are cool people, are they not? But I want to tell you something that I found out. A werewolf can kill a vampire, did you know that? I didn’t know that. So, I don’t want to be a vampire anymore, I want to be a werewolf.”

How bizarre is that? Yet this man, Herschel Walker, could possibly be elected to serve in the U.S. Senate representing the state of Georgia if he beats Senator Raphael Warnock in the runoff election next month.

You just can’t make this shit up.

        I shudder to think what his friends are like if he is the brains of the outfit or if they picked him to say the words he’s told to say. Either way that bloke is a dumbass

    But that’s living in a democracy for you. If it was a meritocracy, idiots would automatically be excluded from standing… and from voting! Next question, who gets to decide who the idiots are?

    He should try to be a sensible person instead of an idiot, but Georgia also has Marjorie Taylor Green so that tells you who they will vote for.

    I live in Georgia. and it’s a nasty campaign with both candidates carry baggage. It’s a great state to live in for many reasons and as you can see from the election lots of folks with different ideas.

    It makes it hard to take politics seriously, yet our very future rides on the backs of people like this.

    Well, if either very actually real, he got that fact right supposedly. So there’s an improvement.

    And I’m sure if he gets into office, equal rights for werewolves will be high on his agenda.

      That’s a good one. And perhaps we should debate whether his view that werewolves can kill vampires is a misleading claim. Priorities.

    I saw the speech. 🙄 If he wins, you’re definitely in trouble.

    Could a werewolf running for the senate be any weirder that what we’ve already gone through?
