Loser: Only I Can Win
David Perdue has a compelling message as he announces his campaign to unseat Georgia governor Brian Kemp:
I’m running for Governor to make sure Stacey Abrams is NEVER Governor of Georgia. We need bold conservatives who will stand up to the woke left, not cave to their radical demands. Join me in this fight to Stop Stacey and Save Georgia. pic.twitter.com/iQMMV97ynw

Here’s my favorite part, at :36: “instead of protecting our elections, he caved to Abrams, and cost us two Senate seats, the Senate majority, and gave Joe Biden free rein.”
One of the Senate seats Brian Kemp supposedly lost would be . . . the one Perdue actually lost. So obviously, he’s the guy to fix that problem!
But make no mistake: this is a declaration that Kemp allowed the election to be stolen, and that Perdue will keep Biden from stealing it next time. By which he really means, he will help Trump steal it next time.
A piece in The Atlantic yesterday began:
Technically, the next attempt to overthrow a national election may not qualify as a coup. It will rely on subversion more than violence, although each will have its place. If the plot succeeds, the ballots cast by American voters will not decide the presidency in 2024. Thousands of votes will be thrown away, or millions, to produce the required effect. The winner will be declared the loser. The loser will be certified president-elect.
The prospect of this democratic collapse is not remote. People with the motive to make it happen are manufacturing the means. Given the opportunity, they will act. They are acting already.
Who or what will safeguard our constitutional order is not apparent today. It is not even apparent who will try. Democrats, big and small D, are not behaving as if they believe the threat is real. Some of them, including President Joe Biden, have taken passing rhetorical notice, but their attention wanders. They are making a grievous mistake.
They sure are. Perdue’s announcement is just one cog in a giant Machine being constructed to toss the will of the voters aside in 2024 . . . that is, if they choose wrongly, in the opinion of the Machine.
