Let's hope Sen. Lindsey Graham's predictions for the Georgia Senate runoff go about as well as his prediction for the Nevada race did. During an appearance on last Thursday's Hannity on Fox "news," Graham, who no one will ever confuse with Nostradamus despite Hannity's ridiculous assertion, told host Sean Hannity the rural vote that was left to count in Nevada was going to result in a win for Republican Senate candidate Adam Laxalt.

HANNITY: Senator , let's start in Nevada. You've been following these numbers closely. We had anticipated we thought that was about eighty seven thousand ballots in Clark county. That's heavily Democratic. So it turns out there's only fifty. Now, after tonight's drop, there's only about thirty eight thousand votes left in Clark county. And then you've got a lot of votes in counties that favor Adam Laxalt has what? A thirteen, fourteen thousand vote lead? What does that tell you?

GRAHAM: Adam's going to win. So there's a pathway in Arizona. Kari Lake told you about how we can get there in Arizona. There's a twenty lane highway in Nevada. You can land a space station on the pathway that Adam Laxalt has.

60 percent of what's left are same day ballot drop offs. They're our people. She can't get there from here. Four thousand votes are going to come in pretty soon, we think, from rural Nevada to make up for what you saw today. She can't get there.

HANNITY: By the way this just came.

GRAHAM: Adam Laxalt's going to win this race.

HANNITY: One county just came in and apparently Adam Laxalt, which county was it? It was a smaller rural county, and that is plus one thousand for Adam Laxalt. Boy, you're like Nostradamus.

GRAHAM: You know what I tell you, I don't get paid nearly enough. As a matter of fact, I don't get paid anything. It's probably legit that I don't get paid anything. He's going to win. Okay? So he's going to tell you tomorrow how he wins. They're counting votes in Arizona. I like where we're at in Arizona. I love where we're at in Nevada. What are we going to do in Georgia? We're going to vote again, okay?

Now what Warnock said is the sign of a loser. That press conference today when he went after Hershel tells me he's losing. And here's one rule we should never forget in politics, the nightmare for an incumbent is to be in a runoff.

Warnock has been in office for years. He raised one hundred million dollars. Every media outlet in the country tried to destroy Hershel, and Warnock fell short. If you don't win the first time as an incumbent, you're not going into second time in a runoff. Perdue and Loeffler lost.

Warnock's going to lose. You can't buy a seat, but the lack of money can make... can lose a seat. And I worry that Blake didn't have enough money against Kelly.

Which was followed by Graham pleading for Republicans to support Herschel Walker in the Georgia runoff to the point that he was practically in tears, insisting that mean old Democrats are trying to "destroy" Walker to keep Black people from wanting to become Republicans.

Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, spoke to Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday about the runoff and he appeared emotional as he called on people for support and donations for the Walker campaign. [...]

"They're trying to destroy Herschel to deter young men and women of color from being Republicans," Graham told Hannity on Thursday. "If they destroy Herschel, it will deter people of color from wanting to be a conservative Republican because you just have your life ruined. We cannot let that happen. We need to have his back."

"If Herschel wins, he's going to inspire people all over Georgia—of color—to become Republicans and I say all over the United States. Herschel Walker is a nightmare for liberals. He's an African American conservative. They have belittled him, they have treated him like c***," Graham said.

The senator went on: "The conservative movement for people of color is on the ballot in Georgia. We must help people like Herschel for the benefit of our country and the future of conservatism."

Maybe conservatism would have a better chance if the likes of Lindsey Graham and Sean Hannity would stop lying to their voters nonstop, or put forward some better candidates than someone like Hershel Walker. I didn't include it in the clip above, but Hannity opened up the segment pushing two already debunked lies about Warnock. All they have are lies and projection, and the conservative victimhood card they were playing here, because they sure as hell can't run on any of their widely unpopular policies.
