The robocalls in Georgia are way out of line. I don’t know that they’re directly related to the Kemp campaign, and I believe the Kemp campaign has even denied them, but that would be pro forma, because it’s probably the kind of thing they say in private, too, and probably the kind of thing they’re chuckling at, secretly glad some of their supporters are doing it.
The thing is, they were mocking Oprah Winfrey, saying she just wanted to get her ‘follow Negress’ elected Governor of Georgia. Stuff like that. I think it could very well backfire on them.
Oprah’s been around for awhile. It’s television aimed at women more than men. And Oprah is popular with all women, including white women, including white women in Georgia. They’ve been watching Oprah far longer than they’ve even heard of Brian Kemp.
I don’t know, I have overestimated the south before, but I think stunts like this are going to help Abrams. You just don’t fuck with Oprah Winfrey.
