    This is my favorite headline about his campaign:

    “He's predicted race wars, likened gay marriage to rape, and longed for the days he could call women “sluts” again. Now former Rep. Jason Lewis would like to be your new U.S. senator.”

    That's great. Where's it from?

    To be fair, it is just the stock Republican platform.

    City pages, so the WaPo it’s not.

    I love this part:
    When we last left our hero, the former congressman was unceremoniously dumped after one term representing the St. Paul suburbs and beyond. Karma had arrived at his door. Lewis was ousted convincingly by a lesbian mother of four, Angie Craig.

    Hopefully the righty diaper rash tantrum is dying down. In 2016 that message could have won just to "pwn the libs."

    Having said that, good God do we need fresh blood. That is Tom Miller's political cardinal sin. He's been AG forever, is so popular that the GOP no longer even puts up token sacrificial lambs, is nominally the leader of the state party as its highest ranking statewide official, but has never used his coattails to carry anyone else into office

    It's "flaming out" to stay home to help with a newborn child that's expected to have heart issue? You have a strange priority list, Rover.

    Also, the only reason he was a rising star for the GOP is because he was a lumberjack tournament winner for tree climbing.

    I don't know, northern Wisconsin is uncomfortably close to home and I've never heard of the guy.

    His reasons weren't stated when I posted the article. Obviously all the best to his newborn. Wasn't he the Real World alum?

    I hope the first bill they pass with 51 is the one that makes the top marginal tax rate 99%.

    If they can vote, so should the reps for D.C. and the territories. Be careful what you wish for.

    Pretty amazing that the State of Oklahoma did this considering how red they are. 90% of their voters voted for Johnson and Johnson to do exactly what they did and will vote for it again. Also fun to watch our Congress just sit and do nothing while they watched it all happen.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/26/healt...-bn/index.html

    (CNN)In a landmark decision, an Oklahoma judge on Monday ordered pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson to pay $572 million for its role in the state's opioid crisis.
    The verdict issued by Cleveland County District Judge Thad Balkman marks the end of the first state trial attempting to hold a pharmaceutical company accountable for one of the worst health epidemics in history. In his ruling, Balkman said the opioid crisis has "ravaged" the state of Oklahoma.

    The defendants "engaged in false and misleading marketing of both their drugs and opioids generally, and the law makes clear that such conduct is more than enough to serve as the act or omission necessary to establish the first element of Oklahoma's public nuisance law," Balkman wrote in his ruling (PDF).
    Following the ruling, Johnson & Johnson announced that it plans to appeal the "flawed" judgment.

    "Janssen did not cause the opioid crisis in Oklahoma, and neither the facts nor the law support this outcome," Michael Ullmann, executive vice president and general counsel for Johnson & Johnson, said in a written statement on Monday.
    "We recognize the opioid crisis is a tremendously complex public health issue and we have deep sympathy for everyone affected. We are working with partners to find ways to help those in need," he said. "This judgment is a misapplication of public nuisance law that has already been rejected by judges in other states."
    It's big Tobacco all over again. You would think humanity would learn from it's mistakes.

    They're a nation, not a territory or federal district.
