Roll Call: “U.S. Chamber Backs Justin Amash Primary Opponent

I’m not interested.

Yes, it can happen here.

Oh, those weapons you were kind enough to tell us you had?  Yeah, we changed our minds, you can’t have those any more.

This tweet wins teh Internets:

Also, right now I just don’t want to think about a universe where Terry McAuliffe wins a state-wide election.

Virginia, I am sooooo disappointed in you.

The Schadenfreude is strong with this one:

Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party’s rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated.

Oh boy.
