(CNN) Herschel Walker, the Republican Senate nominee in Georgia, criticized the spending provisions in the newly passed health care and climate law, including money allocated for an urban forestry program which he dismissed as unnecessary. “[A] lot of money it’s going to trees.

The sad thing is that the Republican Party, once a party of the rule of law, a strong defense, and personal liberties is no longer any of those things.

The GOP is pinning its hope on control of the Senate with the likes of Walker, JD Vance, Blake Master, Mehmet Oz, and of course our personal favorite tinfoil-hat Senator, Ron Johnson.

Johnson actually referred to Social Security as practically a “Ponzi Scheme” and has been at the head of the line of the climate change deniers.

The Democrats have some less than stellar candidates up and down the ballot; they always have. All the more reason citizens should put down Twitter and Facebook and read a few local, state and national newspapers for…you know….details and facts.

Having said that, the current crop of GOP Senate candidates, like their hero the make-believe Potus #45, are just not that bright.

You can’t really fix stupid and now more than ever we need smart people making smart decisions not yelling MAGA or “you’re fired” at every problem.
