Remember when Muhammad Ali taunted George Foreman by using the ropes and feigning injury? He called it 'Rope a Dope' and was able to defeat the big dufus by using his aggressiveness against himself.
Just like the defeat of Hillary, no one expected Ali to overcome old age and slowing skills, but they forgot that Ali still had his mind. And when the fight was over, Foreman continued to claim he should have won, that errors were made by the officials and he wanted a rematch.
I would swear Donald Trump has been using the same strategy against the Democratic party and all of his opposition. And to a large degree, whether on purpose or by sheer coincidence, so have the Russians. I believe Trump knows precisely what he is doing, but the Russians were simply trying to cause chaos and have indirectly caused more of it on the left than on the right.
I never bought the idea that the Russians wanted Trump to defeat Hillary. I think they just want the US to be divided, to create anxiety and distrust in national institutions and processes, and to hurt our economy and our foreign policies, especially as they relate to NATO.
They discovered that the Democrats were much more vulnerable, sloppy about security than the Republicans, and easy to hack. Simple as that.
Besides, the Democrats have no real principles or strategic plan. They are against anything conservative, but other than that they are just a herd of cats with a million different special interests. So they are vulnerable to division and confusion of message. Instead of focusing on principles, they take what they can and revel in any success they can find in damaging the status quo, in undermining anything conservative, or in destroying the reputation of their adversaries.
So when Trump feeds liberals red meat, they jump before they look. When the Russians bait them, as they did with their email hacks, they react without thinking. The DNC and much of their complicit media partners are the George Foreman's of the political world.
And now, the results of Georgia's rejection of Ossoff, the Democrats $25 Million Dollar Baby only serves to highlight the intemperance of the Democratic opposition and illustrates how badly they have been sucker punched.
