#EndorseThis: Samantha Bee Searches For The “Unhinged Left”


Trying to understand why Democrat Jon Ossoff narrowly lost to Republican Karen Handel in that special election for Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District? Not quite enough black voters were motivated to turn out, according to some analysts, while others say Republicans were even more motivated by the prospect of a Democratic victory.

Five of his Republican colleagues rebelled against sending the defense appropriations bill to the floor, and blocked it. Again. These things aren’t supposed to happen in the House. Speakers don’t put a bill on the floor when they don’t have the votes locked up. A controlling bloc of the majority doesn’t vote against leadership. Republicans don’t vote against defense spending.
