    Will yet another Trump loser losing mean that the party will at last show Trump the underside of the bus?

    LoL! The party that’s concerned about separation of church and state re-elects Baptist minister who combines both!

    I'm sure Georgia now will become a beacon of the nation waiting to be emulated and adored by the masses.

    Mitch McConnell was right. It is a lesson that will not be lost on the GOP. Rather than celebrating, progressive should breath a sigh of relief and internalize what this portends for 2024.

    Better a minister who respects separation of church and state than a football player who doesn’t.

    I was pleasantly surprised to awaken to this news. Before yesterday, I had assumed that Warnock would win, but as the total for each candidate was rising from the 800,000s to the 900,000s to the one million mark, Walker caught and passed Warnock. The news reported that the early ballots had mostly been counted, and that what remained were mostly election day votes, which were thought to be mostly GOP, so it looked grim.

    Here's an article about the differences between a 50-50 and a 51-49 Senate: What a 51-49 Senate majority means for Democrats | CNN Politics

    I wouldn't have thought it mattered much apart from making the Senate one seat harder for the Republicans to regain until 2028, and weakening Manchin and Sinema. With the 50-50 tie in the present Senate, either one could hold the party hostage. Now, it will take both, and the party would only need to appease one, the first to accept a deal gets it and the other gets nothing like co-conspirators vying to make the first deal.

    But apparently, there are significant procedural differences and differences in staffing and budgeting that will grease things for the Senate Democrats with regard to introducing legislation and confirming judges and other nominees.

    Among Leftists, church and state are one and the same. It would "suddenly" matter if Walker was a Baptist minister. It's like the media and the DNC, same people, different storefront.

    I hope they reject him and then he decides to run independently, splitting the GOP vote.

    I am still hoping that Trump emulates Lyndon Larouche in his next campaign. The conviction of the Trump organization yesterday was a huge step in that direction.

    To this atheist, I don't hear him spouting the Bible left and right. Acting like he'd put the Bible before the Constitution.
    Republicans love talking about faith and the Bible to gain votes from easily manipulated voters.
    Republicans don't respect the Separation of Church and State in the Constitution.

    You need to learn the difference

    Is Warnock trying to get his religious agenda written into law?

    No, that is the tactic of the right.

    It will take a lot to fish it out of the dumpster, but this is a step in the right direction.
