What a normal, healthy presentation of a normal, healthy worldview that just was.

Republican drops recount request in Maine congressional race

Quote:
Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap confirmed on Friday that the recount is over, and "for all practical purposes this election is concluded" with its cessation. He added that Poliquin has a right to appeal Judge Lance Walker's federal court decision, but "the District Court's ruling makes it legally clear that it is not unconstitutional to lose an election."


I swear politicians take special classes on how to throw shade at each other.

Nothing has demonstrated the distance between the coastal elites and real America more than the press’s insistence that that is a beard.

I guess my point is that she’s one of 435 members of the House, who just entered politics. Nobody’s saying she should be president, or speaker, or anything else than the representative for her district.


Some people are.

She’s the Donald Trump of the left: incomprehensibly effective at messaging to a specific, large group within the party that has not felt heard...and otherwise problematic. The question is, whether her pull will be sufficient among that target group to wrest power from the establishment. Given the lack of Russians on her LinkedIn, I’d say she has an uphill battle.

Quote:
At the time, there was only an acting U.S. attorney in office. Later in 2017, President Donald Trump’s appointee arrived, but took no action to prosecute the matter. Instead he focused on a different priority — prosecuting a handful of non-citizens who had allegedly voted.

A spokesman for Robert J. Higdon, Jr., who took over as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina in September 2017, has declined to comment on why no charges were filed following the state’s criminal referrals against Dowless and other Bladen county political operatives.
hmm.

Anyone else annoyed that Congress is going home for the holiday? I mean, didn't Trump even cancel his vacation?

We can't fund the government. TSA workers are going to be at airports on Christmas working for free, and Senators and Representatives are heading home to be with their family.

They need to stay in Washington. Shit, every one of those fuckers makes enough money to fly their family to them for Christmas.

Guys, you can ignore her.

Unless you live in her area, then I guess you kind of have to pay attention.
