Herschel Walker Thinks You Should Have A Salad, Georgia

I missed the Warnock/Walker debate last week. Never fear, idiots always have something to say. And Herschel Walker has been making the media rounds while Georgia’s Senate race continues to look terrifyingly close. Early voting began yesterday. Please don’t screw this up, Georgia.

There’s a lot in that interview, and you can read more details here. One of the talking points Walker hit in his debate against Warnock, and doubled down on in this NBC interview, is his stance on the Inflation Reduction Act which, among other things, capped the cost of insulin. Walker has said that he would NOT have voted for the IRA and has explained that he thinks it’s more important that people eat right than it is to make life-saving insulin more affordable.

According to an American Diabetes Association 2018 study Approximately 1,013,358 people in Georgia, or 12.4% of the adult population, have diagnosed diabetes. And yesterday the journal Annals of Internal Medicine published research indicating that 16.5% of people who use insulin in the United States RATION their medication due to cost. But I’m sure if everyone just ate a few more salads every week they’d all be just fine.

Last night, over on Fox News, Sean Hannity hosted Walker at a Town Hall event that included special guests Senators Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham. What. A. Party. Walker took the opportunity to question Reverend Raphael Warnock’s bona fides as a Christian and then argle bargled a bunch of other nonsense.

There’s only so far down the Fox News rabbit hole I was willing to go in order to find clips of this Town Hall. I feel like the significant lack of social media coverage by Fox News AND Hannity himself must mean something about the quality of the event.

Polls are open in Georgia. Grab a bottle of water, two friends, and go get in line to vote. Please don’t allow this barely sentient pile of wet sweat socks to represent you in Washington.
