Kathy Griffin and Molly Ball's gift to Karen Handel in GA06

I’m sure very few peo­ple were actu­ally at Kathy Grif­fin attempt at atten­tion via the Trump behead­ing photo shoot. After all it’s the log­i­cal con­clu­sion of the con­tin­ual attacks since Novem­ber and the media nar­ra­tive that the elec­tion of Trump is the great­est cri­sis the nation has ever faced.

Since nobody would notice Kathy Grif­fin under nor­mal cir­cum­stances it is nat­ural that both her and the folks set­ting up the photo shoot would use such a method to get her out there and gen­er­ate clicks and views

Fur­ther­more as demon­strated by the cam­pus left there there are plenty of folks for whom this type of thing is only going to make her more pop­u­lar. You can make a good liv­ing out of that niche mar­ket. I can see the cam­pus leftist’s now: Of Course Sug­gest­ing Behead­ing the Pres­i­dent is OK, He’s Hitler you know.

What might sur­prise some are promi­nent mem­bers of the left from Chelsea Clin­ton to Keith Olber­mann falling over them­selves to denounce her actions. You might think this is just virtue sig­nal­ing but no, their reac­tions are very calculated.

Con­sider, the left has just lost another spe­cial elec­tion in Mon­tana and GA 6 elec­tion is com­ing up in a few weeks.

How would the left like to see Karen Han­del run­ning ads link­ing her Demo­c­rat oppo­nent to Kathy Grif­fin, per­haps using the CNN seg­ment of Molly Ball of the Atlantic dis­miss­ing it to show the MSM’s indif­fer­ence to this kind of thing?

Given the reac­tion of vot­ers in Mon­tana the last thing the press wants is to give nor­mal Amer­i­cans already dis­miss­ing them as fic­tion another rea­son to tune them out.

Of course a cam­paign on that is on the ball would already have an add out link­ing Grif­fin and Ball to Jon Ossoff and demand­ing he denounce them. If he fails to then it can be played up, if he does then I’m sure that might lose him some fans with the more fanat­i­cal Trump haters that the left needs to turn out. The Han­del cam­paign or one of the PACS sup­port­ing her should get on this at once.

And after they do then can send a card to Kathy not­ing how kind it was of her to give such a gift to their elec­tion effort.

A Repub­li­can Super PAC has found a new way to tar­get Demo­c­ra­tic can­di­dates: Kathy Griffin.

A new ad uses the con­tro­ver­sial come­dian to crit­i­cize Demo­c­rat Jon Ossoff, say­ing her recent con­tro­ver­sial actions are part of a pat­tern of behav­ior from “lib­eral extrem­ists” who now sup­port the House can­di­date run­ning in Georgia’s 6th Con­gres­sional District.

I’m sure very few people were actually at Kathy Griffin attempt at attention via the Trump beheading photo shoot.  After all it’s the logical conclusion of the continual attacks since November and the media narrative that the election of Trump is the greatest crisis the nation has ever faced.

Since nobody would notice Kathy Griffin under normal circumstances it is natural that both her and the folks setting up the photo shoot would use such a method to get her out there and generate clicks and views

Furthermore as demonstrated by the campus left there there are plenty of folks for whom this type of thing is only going to make her more popular.  You can make a good living out of that niche market.  I can see the campus leftist’s now:  Of Course Suggesting Beheading the President is OK, He’s Hitler you know.  

What might surprise some are  prominent members of the left from Chelsea Clinton to Keith Olbermann falling over themselves to denounce her actions.  You might think this is just virtue signaling but no, their reactions are very calculated.

Consider, the left has just lost another special election in Montana and GA 6 election is coming up in a few weeks.

How would the left like to see Karen Handel running ads linking her Democrat opponent to Kathy Griffin, perhaps using the CNN segment of Molly Ball of the Atlantic dismissing it to show the MSM’s indifference to this kind of thing?

Given the reaction of voters in Montana the last thing the press wants is to give normal Americans already dismissing them as fiction another reason to tune them out.

Of course a campaign on that is on the ball would already have an add out linking Griffin and Ball to Jon Ossoff and demanding he denounce them.  If he fails to then it can be played up, if he does then I’m sure that might lose him some fans with the more fanatical Trump haters that the left needs to turn out.  The Handel campaign or one of the PACS supporting her should get on this at once.

And after they do then can send a card to Kathy noting how kind it was of her to give such a gift to their election effort.

A Republican Super PAC has found a new way to target Democratic candidates: Kathy Griffin.

A new ad uses the controversial comedian to criticize Democrat Jon Ossoff, saying her recent controversial actions are part of a pattern of behavior from “liberal extremists” who now support the House candidate running in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.
