Stacey Abrams for GA Governor – Yes, She’s Really Trying Again

Abrams still says she didn’t lose, not really – so is this a re-election campaign?

She’s a tax evader, a flag burner, and a megaphone with the volume set to “ears bleeding” when it comes to decrying racism and stolen elections. So how does a gal follow that act with any new tricks of the political trade? Well, for Stacey Abrams, you go backward: Announce a bid for governor of Georgia – again. To make matters more interesting – since Abrams never conceded in 2018 to Governor Brian Kemp, still claiming she won – perhaps in her mind, she’s mounting a re-election campaign.

In a video release, Abrams had plenty to say of her intentions in the 2022 run: “opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by zip code, background or access to power.” Translate that to mean gerrymandered districts, systemic racism, and white supremacy. What a confusing mess of a message from the woman who insists the election was stolen from her and has yet to concede to the guy signing papers and issuing orders from the governor’s mansion in the swanky Tuxedo Park neighborhood of Atlanta.

Of course, Abrams is torqued. Or rather still torqued, about having the election “stolen” from her, although it can’t be proven. But activist media types still hang on her every confusing word:

“I don’t know that – empirically – I would have won. But if you add together the thousands of people who faced extraordinary long lines, who faced hurdles that should not happen in a democracy, the votes that we know were not counted, the secretary of state who was also my opponent in the race purged more than 1.4 million voters over basically an eight-year period.”

Why do Democrats insist on keeping the dearly departed and folks who have moved out of state on the voter rolls? It’s a mystery.

Can You Clarify, Please?

Abrams is ready to rumble, in her quirky style. She has been throwing her political weight around by campaigning for other candidates who may be on the edge of the proverbial black hole that swallows up politicians who take the message too far toward the polar vortexes. She tries to rally the troops with her in-your-face style – or frighten them – and it works sporadically, at best.

Stumping in Virginia for the Democratic Party’s gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe, who eventually and embarrassingly lost, the message was clear – or maybe not:

“Just because you win doesn’t mean you won. We’ve got folks who are ready to take back what they think is theirs, but they are not entitled to our progress. They are not entitled to our justice. They are not entitled to our vote.”

Well, that’s about as clear as anything Joe Biden says, right? And to think the activist media was pushing for Abrams to be the president’s number two. Or, as she said in an interview with MSNBC, “I would absolutely answer the phone, and I would be happy to serve as a running mate, not only for the election but also serve as a partner in an administration.”

Abrams has also begun to believe her own press; she should’ve been the vice presidential choice for Joe Biden, she’s still the governor of the Peach State even though she lost, and that only she can drill into white folks’ brains how she can save marginalized communities. To accomplish these lofty and righteous goals, she needs to be the guv – or she is the guv. Again, it isn’t clear.

Ms. Abrams has a sound mind, excellent education, and experience in political speech writing, of all things. The former legislator would make a great elected official in a world based on skill and ability. But, in the world of reality, the road she has chosen might make for good fodder for the media as she rehashes racial issues above all else.
