The Daily Combover - April 18. 2017


As we await the final results from the small sliver of Fulton County that tips GA06, today's Combover looks at how desperate things have been getting for the Republicans.

Caught in a seemingly endless torrent of scandal, corruption, and outright treason, the political rightwing of this country is in free-fall.  And when things get this bad, this fast, it's almost natural for survival instincts to kick in.

For the GOP, that means lie like there is no tomorrow.  From falsehoods regarding Jon Ossoff's political stances (as well as what power he would actually wield as a freshman member of the minority party) we can start to get a feel for it:


Tack on some completely unverified numbers about Republican prosperity and suddenly it's more than a feeling:
Their plan to create those 1.7 million new jobs appears to plagiarize the Underpants Gnomes.

It's magic!

Grand Wizard of the Republican Party
If Ossoff wins outright tonight, the GOP knows it's over. There's no way they hold the House when they are losing blood red districts.  A 10% swing in House votes could give the Democrats as many as 90 additional House seats if it was evenly dispersed. At the very least, it will assuredly give them the 24 they need to take the chamber.

UPDATE: Ossoff did not receive enough votes to win outright but he did outpace the entire Republican field combined.  He remains in good standing for the runoff in June, especially considering where Trump's poll numbers will be by then. All signs point to him planning on "helping" Handel:
And that makes the Republicans sweat.


Catch you on the flip side.
