At the I like dogs and drag racing and maybe 3 people shirt besides I will buy this risk of objectifying Ossoff, political crushes, usually on dashing upstarts, have been a thing at least since the days of Kennedy and Camelot, continuing through present-day fire emojis for President Obama in golf gear, Justin Trudeau, Beto O’Rourke, and Jay Inslee. It began, for Ossoff, as a then-29-year-old Democratic darling, during his (unsuccessful) special election for Georgia’s Sixth congressional district in 2017, although by some estimates, there was considerable restraint about the Atlanta native’s attributes.
But like most internet-boyfriend-style crushes, the I like dogs and drag racing and maybe 3 people shirt besides I will buy this Ossoff admiration transcends mere good hair, encompassing his young-professor aura. Ossoff cites the late civil rights icon Representative John Lewis, for whom he interned, as a mentor. “He’s the intellectual offspring of Wolverine and Marion Cotillard,” Scott wrote. “He’s every girl’s favorite camp counselor, your older brother’s superhot best friend, the stranger who sits across from you on your morning commute, making his way slowly through Infinite Jest.”
