And now Ladies and Germs for a Real Conspiracy Nut and your Next Georgia Senator

 For quite a while, the Republicans have boosted and nominated famous football personalities for elected office*. Right now Tommy Tuberville (ex Head Coach of University of Auburn) serves as the idiotic Senator for Alabama. Favorite quote of mine:

“You know, our government wasn’t set up for one group to have all three branches of government,” Tuberville said. “It wasn’t set up that way, our three branches, the House, the Senate and the executive.” 

As many people who took US History can tell you, Tommy is stupidly wrong. 

  1. The three branches of government are Legislative, Executive and Judiciary - or Congress, President, Supreme Court. You should probably know this is you are member of the Senate, part of the Legislative and not a branch of government. 
  2. No, the Constitution does NOT have anything to say about which control of these 3 branches.

But old Coach Tuberville doesn't take the cake for me. Nope, for me it is the Republican Candidate - and favorite - for Senate, Herschel Walker. He is famous for being an excellent running back at Georgia Bulldogs. He is using that fame when he declared for Georgia Senator. He is a piece of work.

Trump's Guy in Georgia

First, He is a serial abuser of women, including assaulting his ex-wife and threatening her with a gun. He has "taken responsibility" for this. He took it by declaring his emotional difficulties stemmed from Dissociative Identity Disorder. This was "confirmed" by a man with a three degrees in Religion and a minor in Psychology. Not a psychologist, but he plays one on TV.

Second, Lets look at his answer on gun safety laws:

First answer right after shooting: "What I like to do is see it and everything and stuff."

One day later, after being coached and going to a friendly (i.e. Fox) media site, he said this: “What we need to do is look into how we can stop those things. You know, they talk about doing a disinformation, what about getting a department that could look at young men that’s looking at women that looking at social media. What about doing that? Looking into things like that? If we can stop that that way?

Third He claimed that he graduated from U of Georgia after his time in football. He did not. He has removed this confirmation from his website now. But in the past (and his biography) he claims to have been Valedictorian of his High School (no) and graduated int he top 1% of his class in college (again - he did not graduate at all).

Fourth Regarding his business expertise. His claims include running the largest minority-owned food company in the United States; owning multiple chicken plants in another state; and starting and owning an upholstery business which was also, apparently, at one point in his telling, the country’s largest minority-owned apparel company. These are untrue - as is his claim to employ hundreds of people. The chicken factor employed 9 people. His stake in the fast food and upholstery business was limited to licensing his name for 1 year each.

He will fit right in.

  2. It didn't appear to hurt his reproductive parts. Last week he had 1 son (a homophobic gay son - who is prone to idiotic statements).
    Early this week he fessed up he had another son, he didn't tell anyone about.
    Today he fessed up that he has two more children he didn't let anyone know about. This is 3 fatherless children from the man who has repeatedly said father's have to show up or the kids turn out as criminals.
