Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 08, 2018

A re-election celebration is underway in Pod 2 of the Montgomery County Jail after inmate number 232573 claimed victory in Texas House District 27. That inmate is known as Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, to the people on the outside.

Since the convictions were misdemeanors, Reynolds did not have to resign from office. Unless Reynolds' sentence is reduced, he will likely be sitting in a jail cell when the legislature reconvenes in January 2019. Reynolds could miss the entire first year of the 86th legislative session if he's not freed before Sept. 7, 2019.

Well in California, while technically he's not yet been convicted, a Republican was reelected to Congress who has something like 60 felony charges pending and for which he will soon be in court. The same is true for a Republican Congressman in New York, being reelected after having charges brought against him for securities fraud, insider trading and lying to federal authorities (the same thing that landed Martha Stewart in a federal lockup).

But then in Nevada, they also elected a Republican who had been dead for over a month.

Gotta love the move by voters to have voted for the dead guy.

How do you think it would feel to be the opposition, knowing you lost to someone who died weeks before the election?

No, actually the Republican with the outstanding felony changes, he's from San Diego.

Reasons I believe Sniper is a satirical account.

He's overwhelmingly dumb.

He misspells words. But it's gotta he on purpose. To reinforce how dumb he is.

99% of his posts are one liners. That are absurd. Nonsensical. Ignorant. Ill informed.

But. They're not even complete thoughts. They, ala his username, are little snipes he take at users or the topic.

But. His snipes are extremely shallow and easily disproven. More of something to keep bored posters occupied until something/someone real comes along.
