Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

While Roy Moore talks to himself about recounts, Samantha Bee is performing his electoral autopsy. Yes, he more or less endorsed slavery and there was that teenage molestation problem — all of which alienated the kinds of voters who rallied behind Moore’s victorious Democratic opponent Doug Jones.

Sam is determined to make sure that Moore’s horse gets substantial credit for the Jones triumph. Few moments are funnier than the cashiered judge’s attempt to ride that poor beast — clearly a noble animal who “took one for the team.”

You can get away with a lot of things in the Deep South, but do NOT hurt a horse named Sassy!”

Sen. Lisa Murkowski

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) declared on Sunday morning that she will oppose any Republican attempt to move ahead with a Supreme Court nomination to fill the seat left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

"For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election," said Murkowski in a statement released by her office. "Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed."

The Alaska Republican joined Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in opposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's announced determination to replace Ginsburg with a Trump appointee. If McConnell loses two more Republican votes, he will be unable to move a nomination before Election Day.
