    Re: 115th Congress. In Bridge, Can Hearts be Trumped? In Spades!

    Susan Collins is going to announce next week if she is going to run for governor of Maine. If she does, I think that seat will be a possible Democrat pickup. Paul LePage will appoint someone pretty awful to replace her. Or I guess she could stay in the senate until she was sworn in as Governor (the article linked below says that the Maine Constitution would allow her to keep her senate seat until she is sworn in as Governor), but I don't see how she could run a campaign and then put together an administration while still serving in the senate so I'm not sure she would do that just to keep LePage from appointing someone to replace her.

    The Senate doesn't work often enough where she really wouldn't need to leave until she's won election, tbh

    These guys have been on fire lately.

    COLUMBUS, OH—Marveling at how well preserved the archaic opinions were, a team of archaeologists from the Smithsonian Institution announced Thursday the discovery of a fully intact 17th-century belief system in Ohio congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH). “It’s just extraordinary to come across a perspective that dates back to the the mid-1600s and shows absolutely no signs of decay,” said Dr. Claire Goedde, explaining that while it’s not uncommon to encounter partial remains of convictions from that era, it’s exceedingly rare to recover a specimen this pristine. “All the 400-year-old viewpoints remain almost completely untouched, from religion’s place in society to the rights of women to the attitude toward science.

    The congressional pharmacist speaks...

    “At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

    “It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.'”
