Democrats Win Control Of The House As #MeToo Loses


She Guevara will be going to the House of Representatives to provide comic relief, and as of 6:30 am ET, the Democrats have flipped at least one more seat than they need to take control of the House. They’ll use the coming two years of divided government to be as disruptive as possible.

Meanwhile, the #MeToo movement has suffered two serious setbacks.

First, as Jim Geraghty put it, “Once again, Keith Ellison beat someone.” Over a million Democrats voted for him to be the Attorney General of Minnesota, refusing to believe a woman whose claims of abuse were backed up by evidence.

Second, as of 6:30 am ET, the only Democrat senator who faced a serious challenge to reelection and who has won was Manchin—who was the only one who voted for the Kavanaugh nomination. Donnelly, Heitkamp, McCaskill, and Nelson have bitten the dust in Indiana, North Dakota, Missouri, and Florida, and Tester is behind in Montana. Political movements that can’t deliver votes have little clout. Those that are a liability on election day have none.

Politicians Acting Bad


So what did the Canadians think they were getting when the gave the Liberals a majority and allowed Trudeau to form a government?

He’s not the first person with the kind of ego needed to be a national-level politician who has felt entitled to take what he wants when he wants it. He won’t be the last.
