The Democrats are working on promoting yet another new star in bitter sore loser Stacey Abrams who lost her Georgia gubernatorial race despite millions in out of state money and failed chicanery with votes.
The 45-year-old radical who once burned a state flag on the Georgia state capitol’s steps and vowed to sandblast the Confederate images off of the Stone Mountain Monument had she won the governorship is not a very telegenic figure but has been tabbed by Chuck Schumer to deliver the rebuttal to President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union Address.
The gap-toothed Abrams who has a physique that would seem to qualify her to play offensive guard for the Atlanta Falcons and who has a curious resemblance to Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in drag will get her star turn before a national television audience where she will engage in the now standard playing of the race card that has become the party’s bread and butter absent any real ideas.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Democrats pick failed gubernatorial candidate for State of the Union response”:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced Tuesday that failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democratic Party’s official response next week to President Trump’s State of the Union address.
If you’re wondering why, of all the failed Democratic candidates from the last election cycle, including the supposedly magnetic, Kennedy-esque former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, Democratic leadership chose Abrams, it’s almost certainly because of her post-2018 election narrative.
“Three weeks ago, I called Stacey Abrams and asked her to deliver the response, I was very delighted when she agreed,” Schumer told reporters Tuesday. “If you look at her background — she knows what working people, middle-class people go through. I’m very excited that she’s agreed to be the respondent to the president.”
He also said in a note that likely explains the real reason for Abrams getting the nod, “She has led the charge for voting rights, which is at the root of just about everything else.”
That bit there about voting rights is significant. The choice of Abrams to deliver the State of the Union response suggests that Democrats plan to make the alleged “voter suppression” efforts by the GOP a key issue going into 2020.
Democrat leaders aren’t the least bit bothered that Abrams is a black identity extremist who supports illegal aliens being granted voting rights, is keen to the idea of stealing money from white people to pay reparations and whose avid followers include these guys.
It should be a real barn burner but has the potential to blow up in Chuck and Nancy’s face like everything else.
