Much of the media’s attention has been focused on a Georgia congressional race. Supposedly it was to be a barometer of the national political mood. The late Tip O’Neill used to say “all politics is local”. That may be a bit overstated but it does ring true.
Democrats contributed to the silliness by going all out and spending around $30 million. This is a heavily Republican district. The GOP candidate was well known (she had been Georgia’s Secretary of State). Her opponent was a thirty year old unknown who didn’t even live in the district. I guess Democrats must be desperate for a win since there is no good reason to go to such lengths.. Republicans are also acting silly by claiming this to be a mandate for President Trump. The candidate went to great lengths to distance herself from Trump. No matter who won, most of us would have forgotten about it in a few days.
We like to know what will happen in the future. Like it or not, we have to wait for the future to unfold.
