If friends are any bet, by having robo-calls and call centers call members of the district every day, even several times a day asking for them to support Jon Ossoff.

One friend started the election cycle out by being nominally interested in voting for Ossoff. By the end of the campaign he'd managed to get an irate message to Ossoff directly telling him to LEAVE HIM THE FUCK ALONE or else he was going to donate MORE money to the Handel Campaign. Apparently it worked because the last weekly door to door canvassers were under orders to skip his house.

You couldn't listen to local radio without hearing ads for Ossoff either.



Then there's this Twitter Essay which mirrors my friend's rage at the Ossoff phone calls.

What do you expect, logic being derived from the Greek λόγος, or logos. IOW, a dead-white-male concept, and thus racist-sexist-homophobic-Islamophobic.

You forgot the kicker. They voted in a woman!
 

Here's your head-scratcher for the day: a feminist is now blaming “toxic, vindictive voters” and “hateful white people” for electing a woman to office instead of a heterosexual white male.
No, this isn't an Onion headline. By electing Republican Karen Handel to Georgia’s 6th District congressional seat instead of Democrat Jon Ossoff, feminist and all-around screeching shrew Jill Filipovic says voters displayed their rampant "bigotry." Because, as we have clearly learned by now, it’s never the left’s fault when they lose elections – it’s all the work of racist white trash hicks and their no-good Confederate flag-waving ways.


But she has an R behind the name. The mark of the devil. THE RRRRRRRRR!!!111!!

Probabaly thought up by a slave owner! *gasp*

 

 

shouldn't this be in the hypocrisy of the left thread? oh well, back to trumpling.

somebody took the time and counted if they got back to them:

The 55 things the White House has promised to get back to us on
 
By Philip Bump June 21 at 1:59 P
 
The Atlantic’s David Graham posed a simple question Tuesday: Why do we even bother with press secretary Sean Spicer’s daily briefings?
Theoretically, the press briefing is meant to meet the needs of both the White House and the media by providing a centralized place to answer questions. Instead of the White House replying to 10 outlets seeking the same information, just do it all at once. Easy enough. But, as Graham noted, Spicer (and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders) often have no answers.
“Spicer’s vow to ‘get back to you on that’ has become practically a catchphrase,” Graham wrote. And it’s true. By our count, Spicer or Sanders have offered that reply on at least 55 different occasions during briefings or gaggles (less formal group discussions).
Before we walk through those promises, it’s worth noting at least one reason Spicer and Sanders default to a response of “I’ll find out.” One, obviously, is that they genuinely don’t know and are committing to get an answer. Another is probably that they’d rather not offer an answer. This has its own separate possible causes, including that President Trump has a habit of contradicting affirmations made by people who work for him. He’s given his press secretaries a get-out-of-trouble free card on Twitter, as seen below, but it seems clear that the risk of offering a response to even an obvious question sometimes outweighs the reward. Perhaps because that reward is “earning the respect of the media, a group that Trump hates.”)


As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017


Below, our list of all of the times someone from the White House communications office promised to get back to the American public with more information — and, to the best of our ability to determine the answer, whether they did. It’s important to note, by the way, that this includes only specific pledges to provide more information.

 

  • Feb. 1. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether the president gets a verbal security briefing every day. Did he? Apparently not.
  • Feb. 1. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether Barack Obama will be invited to participate in Black History Month celebrations. Did he? No.
  • Feb. 3. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether the government will track down and deport those whose visas were revoked under the travel ban. Did he? This became irrelevant when the ban was blocked by the courts.
  • Feb. 7. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether the administration had accepted the credentials of the ambassador from Mexico. Did he? The ambassador was accepted.
  • Feb. 8. Spicer says he will get back to us on who paid for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Mar-a-Lago. Did he? The next day, Trump agreed to pay the costs.
  • Feb. 17. Sanders says she will get back to us on the timeline for replacing Michael Flynn as national security adviser. Did she? This was eventually revealed.
  • Feb. 17. Sanders says she will get back to us on who was paying for Air Force One’s travel to a Trump campaign rally. Did she? Apparently not.

  • May 9. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether a fired usher got a generous severance package. Did he? Apparently not.
  • May 9. Spicer says he will get back to us on when we could expect an announcement on the administration’s policy toward the International Monetary Fund. Did he? Apparently not.
  • May 9. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether a meeting between Ivanka Trump and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt was canceled. Did he? Apparently not.

  • May 12. Spicer says he will get back to us on how Comey ended up dining at the White House. Did he? It was eventually revealed.
  • May 15. Spicer says he will get back to us on how Comey ended up dining at the White House. This is the second such promise. Did he? It was eventually revealed.
  • May 16. Spicer says he will get back to us on what Trump views as the long-term goals of Russia. Did he? Apparently not.
  • May 30. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether Trump will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. This is the second such promise. Did he? It was eventually revealed.
  • June 2. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether Trump thinks climate change is exacerbated by humans — if he has a chance to talk to him. Did he? Not yet.
  • June 5. Sanders says she will get back to us on why there’s no ambassador to Britain yet. Did she? Apparently not.
  • June 5. Sanders says she will get back to us on who removed a reference to Article V from a speech Trump gave at NATO. Did she? Apparently not.

  • June 8. Sanders says she will get back to us on whether Trump initiated all nine contacts between himself and Comey. Did she? Apparently not.
  • June 12. Spicer says he will get back to us on when there would be a news conference about the fight against the Islamic State. Did he? Not yet.
  • June 15. Sanders says she will get back to us on why Christopher A. Wray’s nomination to replace Comey hadn’t been sent to the Senate. Did she? Apparently not.
  • June 15. Sanders says she will get back to us on whether Trump would nominate an ambassador to Cuba. Did she? Not yet. It was promised this week.
  • June 19. Spicer says he will get back to us on Trump’s position on Yucca Mountain. Did he? Not yet.
  • June 19. Spicer says he will get back to us on replacing members of an HIV/AIDS council. Did he? Not yet.
  • June 20. Spicer says he will get back to us on whether the president thinks the Russians meddled in the 2016 election. Did he? No, but Trump had previously said he did believe that — and that he didn’t.
It is possible that we missed some of the responses that ensued to the promises made by Spicer and Sanders. (If we have, don’t hesitate to email.) Generally speaking, though, it’s clear that the goal is less frequently to tell the media that the information was not at hand and more frequently simply to deflect the question indefinitely.
Spicer and Sanders do provide useful information. But if the media wants to pin them down on something more controversial, the most effective strategy appears to be to ask over and over again.
