“If turnout is in the 30s, the low 30s, we’re gonna win. If it gets higher up in Fairfax [in Democratic-leaning Northern Virginia], say like 40, it’s likely we won’t. I don’t think it’s going to hit 40 anywhere. I’m looking at 32.”

If you want to know why I no longer watch sports or am interested in it, look no farther than this Atlantic article.
After listing example after example of billionaire team owners getting public money for their stadiums (and living near the city of Santa Clara, who just got reamed by the 49ers for about $1Billion only drives it home more), there is this single, little factoid that just makes me feel outrage and nausea:
That’s right—extremely profitable and one of the most subsidized organizations in American history, the NFL also enjoys tax-exempt status. On paper, it is the Nonprofit Football League.

–Congressional Candidate NY-27 Chris Collins (R – of course)
Tell that to the 30,000 or so men who die from prostate cancer, and the 40,000 or so women who die from breast cancer each year. Assrocket.
Here’s the kind of optics that I think the GOP might want to reconsider when Rep. Gregg Harper, white Republican Congressman from Mississippi, has Bobby Rush, the black Democratic congressman from Illinois, thrown out of the chamber for wearing a hoodie (and reciting Bible verses), which it seems is against the rules, as is legislating while being black?
