    Recently the GOP candidate Gianforte won an election after body slamming a Dim reporter to the ground for being obnoxious.

    It is truly amazing how the political landscape has changed over the years. We now have prominent Dims up on stage publically saying "F-Trump and Republicans assaulting reporters and still getting elected.

    We are all screwed.

    That was a fluke. Montana has a deal where you can mail in your votes, don't have to be absentee. As it happened, 70% of the votes were already in. Weird part is, after the dumping of endorsements, there was a peak in the voting, voting FOR the dude from the right wing. They paniced and wanted their frothing at the mouth ultra right winger to win.

    If that had taken place in say California, Oregon, even Alabama or Tennessee, where you go the poles to vote, he would have been creamed by the opposition.

    So it was the fluke of the Montana voting system allowing mail in votes that won the election for him.

    One thing, he will not be liked on the hill AND he has to go to court over the whole deal and may get a fine and the ultra slim possibility of jail time. Right. Like that is going to happen in an ultra right wing survivalist state....

    His survivalist buddies probaby like him even more for showing the balls to stand up to media, even though the reporter weighed in at 150 pounds soaking wet....

    Arizona has this, but it is called 'early voting'. Absentee voting is something different.

    I'm on the list and get my ballots in the mail weeks before the election, with a deadline to send them back. Beats the long lines at the polls.

    I think you are all wrong!

    These polls tell us that the American voters is soooo sick of the press, we now will vote for those who will kick their arse.

    He did break his glasses though. That should at least count for something.

    Not a "Dim reporter." He wasn't even American.

    Asking critical questions to politicians is the job of journalists, however "obnoxious" politicians may find answering those questions.

    To be fair, the public had been saying "F-Bush" as well. Scores of musicians and other celebs absolutely hated Bush. So that's nothing new.

    No, I'm talking about the top brass up on stage saying it.

    I realize that most Dims use such foul and disrespectful language, but the top brass saying it seems to be a new development.

    John McCain at a fundraising dinner in Arizona a decade ago: "Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father."

    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/311686-trump-ny-co-chair-wishes-death-on-obama

    Carl Paladino, who served as New York co-chairman for President Donald Trump’s campaign about Michelle Obama:

    “Michelle Obama. I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortable in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.”

    Don't pretend Republicans aren't egregious offenders in this area.
