Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Kansas Republican Sam Brownback, one of the most unpopular governors in the country, barely survived a key vote on his bid for a big Trump administration job on Wednesday, as Vice President Mike Pence broke a tie that kept his nomination alive. "I'm glad to have the vice president in my corner," Brownback told reporters seconds after Pence cast the tie-breaking vote.

"International Religious Freedom"

I'll believe that the first time I see him standing behind a woman in a burka denying marriage licenses to Christians.

Brownhack!?? for "international religious freedom"??
And the corruption continues apace, making the US more and more like a banana republic.

Thanks for nothing, Trumpvoters©; you built this!

Sent Mike a fruit basket today. I'm not sure if that is an appropriate gift or not, but I just wanted to say thank you.

I'm fine with him leaving Kansas, of course.

But a nomination for something like this shouldn't come down to a party line vote. IMO, many republicans felt compelled to vote to confirm him even though they can't stand him.

IOW, there were certainly more qualified candidates that would have been a much easier confirmation.

Why can't Trump put someone out there that's easier to accept? Geez...it might make things easier for his own party if he did that.
