Georgia to the Rescue?

With Rev. Warnock already declared the victor and Mr. Ossof seemingly headed to a narrow win in the Georgia U.S. Senate runoff elections, it will be interesting to see what the new narrative will be from the Trumpian Party (fka the GOP). The consistent drumbeat from the apparently corrupt, prevaricating, outgoing Senators Perdue and Loeffler has been that they are the last bulwark standing between the nation and godless socialism that will destroy America as we know it.

That is not going to happen. Control of the Senate will now be in the hands of the so-called moderates from both parties Manchin from W. Virginia, Romney from Utah, Collins from Maine, Murkowski from Alaska and some others. Any legislation will have to get their support to have a realistic chance of passage. America is not going to turn into the socialist hellhole predicted by the Perdue, Loeffler and the right-wing media mob. It just is not going to happen. Of course, that will not stop them from creating a new false narrative to pitch to gullible Trump Voters who slop at the table of Fox News, OAN and NewsMax. But will any new narrative continue to have legs in the face of actual moderately progressive legislation? Red cannot predict that.

What Red can predict is that Democratic control of the Senate will mean that President Biden will have free reign on his incoming cabinet and judicial picks for at least two years. That is no small thing and worth the price of admission alone.
