Lin Wood is an exceptionally talented demagogue

Lin Wood’s rally with Sidney Powell in Georgia yesterday was as crazy as you’d expect, but I have to admit that Wood is a natural political performer and if he wants to challenge Brian Kemp in a primary from the QAnon wing of the party, he is he definitely got an opening:

Of course, the potential cost of Wood and Powell’s rank conspiracy is the GOP’s disagreement at a time when the party needs every vote in the January runoff election.

Even passionate Trumpists are starting to see this. Here’s Newt:

Lin Wood and Sidney Powell are totally destructive. Every Georgian Conservative who cares about America MUST vote in the runoff election. Your strategy of not voting will cripple America

The problem, of course, is that even though the President has asked people to vote for Perdue and Loeffler, he is uttering the same toxic nonsense that, if taken seriously, means Georgia is no longer a real democracy, so it really is no point in the vote.

I wrote about it today for Politico:

When Wood and Powell were asked about the handcounting that should have brought Dominion Theory to bed at their rally on Wednesday, Powell denied there was a full handcount, saying regardless of the Georgia electoral system being designed to do it was to distort the recounts.

One can only conclude that if Georgia allowed Wood and Powell to personally select a team of forensic scientists to inspect all ballots in a hermetically sealed exam room guarded by Navy SEALs, they would still have found a reason why the count was undermined if it showed Biden ahead.
