Georgia Revolution Is a ‘Fuck You’ Aimed Right at Trump
STAGGERING NIGHT
On an unbelievably heartening night for America, Georgia put an end to the pathetic career of Kelly Loeffler and ushered in a bright new era.

It was a staggeringly amazing night. Georgia has elected a Black man and in all likelihood a Jewish man to the United States Senate. Both of them liberal. Georgia. It’s astonishing. And the historical debt paid, especially in Raphael Warnock’s win: The pastor at Martin Luther King’s church is going to be a United States senator.

This is one of those rare situations in life where it’s impossible to know what to be happiest about.

Maybe about Trump. Picture him fuming over this, confused, pacing, picking up the phone, screaming at whoever, throwing stuff at Hogan Gidley; just think of the dark torment that has clouded his brain, which must physically hurt. He’ll rationalize it away as cheating, of course, but he’ll do that for the precise reason that he’ll know deep down that this was a fuck you aimed right at him.

So that is good. But then, every 30 seconds or so, my brain starts ringing with: “Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell…”

Because this is a repudiation of him, too. There is a price to his oily arrogance, his sneering abuse of democracy, to block a Supreme Court nominee in March of one presidential election year and jam one through in September of the next. You can’t sit on bill after bill after bill designed to help people, from minimum wage to infrastructure. You can’t deny people $2,000 in a COVID relief bill and restore the three-martini lunch. People will say enough.

The Trump rage machine will heat up again today. If you’re not nervous about these next two weeks, you’re asleep. But at least now there’s light ahead. Or, as Warnock’s famous predecessor in that famous pulpit put it: “Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”
