Can Herschel Walker Survive?


Back in 1944, Lyndon Johnson ran for Congress for the first time. A couple of weeks before the election, ol’ Lydon and his buddies got together behind the church to assess the campaign.

“You’re losin’ Lyndon,” said one of his friends, “and we gotta come up with sumpin’ that’ll make the voters come out for you and not for him.”

Everyone sat around sayin’ this, sayin’ that. All of a sudden ol’ Lyndon spoke up. “I got it,” he shouted. “We’ll spread the story that he fucks pigs.”

“Awww Lyndon,” drawled one of his good friends, “you know that’s not true.”

“Of course it’s not true,” replied LBJ, “but we’ll get him to deny it!”

After Lyndon Johnson became President, whenever the conversation turned to election strategies he repeated that story all the time in the Oval Office or anywhere else.

Guess what? Somebody connected to the Warnock campaign in Georgia must have heard this LBJ story second or third hand because this morning Herschel Walker is denying a story which just came out about how he paid for a girlfriend’s abortion amd even sent her a ‘get well’ card.

Walker also claims he is suing the Daily Beast which broke the story which both he and his lawyer claims to be totally ‘false.’ He might consider joining the suit that Trump has just filed for $475 million for compensatory damages against CNN, claiming that by calling Trump’s complaints about election ‘fraud’ as being a ‘Big Lie,’ that CNN is ‘interfering’ with his ‘political career.’

Trump’s political career? I can just see him now, getting up at one of those stupid MAGA rallies and announcing that he won’t be a candidate in 2024 because CNN’s reportage and the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago have robbed America of the blessing of having him in the Oval Office again.

Guys like Trump and Walker have what Grandpa would call no ‘rachmonis,’ (read: modesty.) They’ll say anything and if you disagree with them you’re just another liar who’s trying to interfere with his political career.

One of those liars happens to be Walker’s son, who made the following comment on Twitter after his forgot the condom which would have kept the whole story from getting out: “Every family member of Herschel Walker asked him not to run for office, because we all knew (some of) his past. Every single one. He decided to give us the middle finger and air out all of his dirty laundry in public, while simultaneously lying about it.”

Now you would think that someone running for public office, particularly a Senate seat in Georgia, would know from the gitgo that every inch of their lives would be examined and taken apart to find something, some little piece of dirt that could be dredged up and put on public display.

But if he’s done one thing for the rest of us since getting involved in politics, Trump has made it easier for anyone to remain politically alive even if they do admit, shall we say, to fucking pigs. Here’s a guy, after all, who apologized on national TV for bragging about grabbing women by the crotch, and not only did he survive that public shaming, but then went on to become President of the United States.

Maybe Herschel Walker knocked her up, maybe he didn’t. But either way, what you couldn’t say in 1944 you can certainly say today.

Will Reverend Warnock mention this issue in the fundraising email his campaign sends me every day?
