    Trump really gutted him. He may come to regret that — there are now two Republicans headed out the door on the oversight committee.
    Wow, I saw that!!

There's really no other way to stop our nation from becoming a full blown damned Banana Republic.

    Dims stayed home in 2016? I heard a rumor some 2.5 million more Dims voted than Republicans.


    Hmmmmm.....

    Since we're talking primaries in South Carolina here's another one.

    Archie Parnell, a Democratic congressional candidate in South Carolina, won the Democratic primary Tuesday night in a landslide weeks after it was publicly revealed that he abused his wife in the 1970s.

    Parnell, who has admitted to hurting his ex-wife, received 60 percent of the vote against his three Democratic opponents, according to Politico. This win comes after Parnell faced a wave of criticism in May when court records came to light showing he inflicted "acts of physical cruelty" on his spouse at the time.

    Lets remember the GOP was in the shitter before Trump. Now Republicans see a reprieve. The GOP has been ball-less for decade.

    Look how they yearned for a leader like Reagan again. The Trump myth will rival the Reagan myth.
