Among some jaded pros in Washington she was always the greedy rich girl who only got to the Senate through connections. But there is something more to Kelly Loeffler. Yes, that Covid-19 related investment move was stupid. She's lucky she walked.
And her last minute embrace of the $2000 gimmick was transparently desperate. You got the feeling with Loeffler though, and I met her and had a chance to talk to her for a bit once, that she was trying hard but was more than at sea in a town that does not rely on merit or intelligence but image and guile.
Her defeat put in the Senate perhaps the worst of the lot, a racist Marxist who is on a revenge mission against the rest of America. That has to hurt, a personal repudiation at the hands of a virtual communist. That definitely wasn't in the playbook.
FNC: "U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia delivered a farewell address on the Senate floor Tuesday, ripping cancel culture and "dangerous narratives" on her way out."
Loeffler: "The American people are alarmed by the effort to censor conservative voices. We're witnessing a constitutional crisis that threatens to erode the First Amendment and silence people across our country. As a Republican, a conservative American who still believes in the Constitution and the core principles on which our country was founded, I refused to be intimidated by the cancel culture, and its dangerous narratives. However, not every American feels free to speak up. Their voices are being lost."
She said it's obvious America needs more outsiders and "with all due respect — fewer politicians."
She then spoke eloquently about the American people.
"They certainly don't want their way of life overwhelmed by radical change and costly policies that will push them out of their job, limit their children's educational opportunities, and threaten their right to worship and speak freely...At the same time, while those on the left feign a desire for unity, they say they cannot tolerate it without accountability. In essence, there can be no unity without conforming to their views. Disagree, and you will be canceled and not just your social media account, but your job, your family, your educational opportunities, even your God-given rights. Only those who meet their ideological purity test can claim moral superiority and retain their voice.
"Yes, I've been a proud champion of conservative values, but I always put Georgia first, ahead of politics. For a shy farm girl who was the first in her family to graduate from college, who could have never imagined that one day I would serve as the United States senator from the great state of Georgia — thank you all, it has been my deepest honor."
