Diamond And Silk Idiots Again
Look like the Blue Wave that the left talked about was overtaken by a Big Red Tsunami on last night. Congratulations Republicans! pic.twitter.com/5h7STmOrgB

WHO'S GOING TO TELL THEM?
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Wonkette is ready to call every race in Tuesday's Republican primary for the Republican candidate. Mazal Tov on your stunning upset, GOP! Guess we won't be hearing any more about a Blue Wave, will we?
The Republican Party had a great night. Tremendous voter energy and excitement, and all candidates are those who have a great chance of winning in November. The Economy is sooo strong, and with Nancy Pelosi wanting to end the big Tax Cuts and Raise Taxes, why wouldn't we win?

Ummmm, okay. West Virginia voters took Trump's heartfelt endorsement of either of those other two white dudes to heart and picked state Attorney General Patrick Morrissey to run against Joe Manchin this fall.
To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference. Problem is, Don Blankenship, currently running for Senate, can't win the General Election in your State...No way! Remember Alabama. Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!

Yes, Democrats would have been delighted to run against Don Blankenship. Congratulations West Virginia GOP on not voting for a racist
felon -- you really triggered us good!
Update June 3, 2019: Our apologies to Don Blankenship, who is now suing us and every other news outlet in the world. While we have invariably referred to Mr. Blankenship's jailing on misdemeanor charges for his role in a conspiracy that led to the deaths of 29 miners, we did not catch this one use of "felon" in the editing process. Mr. Blankenship spent a year in prison for a misdemeanor, not a felony. So that is, according to Mr. Blankenship and his lawyers, a very different thing.
But 159,891 Democrats showed up to vote in a largely uncontested primary, compared to 136,220 who cast ballots in the Republican slugfest. We will repeat that, because it is worth drawing attention to, IN CAPS: DEMOCRATS, IN WEST VIRGINIA, OUTVOTED REPUBLICANS WHEN THEY DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THAT MUCH OF A PRIMARY. Please, tell us more about these rarin'-to-go Republicans getting super psyched to pick off Joe Manchin in November!
And speaking of rousing successes, HI INDIANA! Did you just have two sitting Republican Congressmen retire so they could run for Senate against Joe Donnelly, only to have both of them lose in the primary? (Paging Martha McSally!) So now you have two vacant Congressional seats to defend, and Mike Braun, a self-funded outsider, headed for the general election? Sounds just terrific.
Please, Fox News, tell us how great it was that North Carolina Congressman Robert Pittenger got knocked off in the primary by that God-bothering loon Mark Harris!
lololol @HARRISFAULKNER and @RepDougCollins are currently having a discussion on Faux News about "why Republicans had great success last night" -- in their primary elections... against other Republicans.

HARRIS FAULKNER: Why did Republicans have great success last night? REP. DOUG COLLINS: 'Cause we have the best message. I mean, this is a thing that resonates with people. They like a government that is getting out of the way, putting them first.
So votes! Many success!
Pay no attention to those losers on the news side of your operation. What does Chad Pergram know, right? He only spends all day wandering the halls of Congress. If you want to know what's really going on, you need to spend an hour with hair and makeup, then park yourself on a couch in Fox's New York studio.
Primary results from Tuesday showing 2018 isn't a great year to be a House Republican https://t.co/YmUq0D3HJP

Whatever, man. That's just, like, your opinion.
