In case you forgot Stacey Abrams came very close to being Georgia’s first black female governor.
Courtesy of CNN:
Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Tuesday she has accepted an invitation to give the Democratic response to the State of the Union address.
Abrams has been talked about as a rising star in the Democratic Party. She gained a national following during her unsuccessful bid to become governor of Georgia last fall. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday said he called Abrams three weeks ago to discuss the idea and that she has since accepted.
Abrams said on Tuesday that she is “honored” to give the Democratic response. Abrams’ spokesperson said Abrams would be the first black woman to give the Democratic response to the State of the Union.
“At a moment when our nation needs to hear from leaders who can unite for a common purpose, I am honored to be delivering the Democratic State of the Union response,” Abrams tweeted.
The response to this decision has been almost universally positive.
Well, except in Wasilla of course.

By the way, do yourself a favor and skip clicking that link to Chicks on the Right.
It is poorly written right wing clickbait that has no other value than to give Palin a link for her attack tweets.
Now you have probably already guessed that Palin using the word “loser” in her tweet to describe anybody was going to bite her in the ass, and you are so right.
I must have missed when you were sworn in as Vice President, literal loser.

Gov. Palin I just wanted to congratulate you on finishing this tweet.

You lost the VP race. You quit your job as governor so you could do a TV show. That got canceled. Now you’re just an idiot tweeting and trying to stay relevant. I’d say you live in a glass house but you’re too stupid to know what that means. Loser indeed.

She really walked right into this one.
But you know what? She probably does not even really mind, just as long as SOMEBODY is actually talking about her.
Well done with that now.
I am looking forward to Stacey Abram’s response.
I bet she kills it.
