The Republican Party Takes Flight

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) has a long article up on the most-vulnerable wingnuts who voted to take healthcare away from their constituents, and it starts off with good ol’ Darrell ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ Issa:

Issa, the former House Oversight chairman who delighted in tormenting the Obama administration, won reelection to his seat in Orange County by just 5,000 votes in 2016. He, along with a slew of other vulnerable Republicans in the California delegation, voted for the bill — at least partially out of loyalty to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Issa’s opponent last cycle, retired Marine Col. Doug Applegate, has already launched a second challenge. But such is the opportunity Democrats sense in fast-changing Southern California that another Democrat, Mike Levin, has also jumped into the race. Other Orange County Republicans like Reps. Mimi Walters and Dana Rohrabacher, whose districts also went for Clinton (and who also voted for the GOP bill), have already attracted multiple Democratic primary challengers as well.

Lots’a racing forum info for making book in Vegas. Kinda a fun read in a Sick, Sad World kinda way.
