I think what puzzles me the most is that they used a Can song.  I mean, that's pretty obscure, plus their lead singers were a black man and a Japanese man.

I think they rather get a charge out of that very thing.

Ok, I did some searching, it apparently was covered by a lot of people, as recently as 1998.  That would increase the odds of someone knowing it.

Plus, the lyrics didn't age that well.

The midterms are still not over.  The contested representative seat in Utah has gone blue.

And then this happened.

Oh, they did. 

Fun fact:  Medgar Evers' brother voted for Hyde.

That's the guy.

And then he supported Hyde, who had just the week before made a very public lynching joke.  Just imagine, shitting on your own brother's grave.

He was apparently himself a pretty decent civil rights activist type back then, according to what a quick google tells me. So he’s also shitting on his own legacy. Thoroughly unpleasant person it seems.

1. Wisconsin used to have a GOP majority.  They did their level best to set up unbreakable gerrymanders.
2. A democrat won the Governor's seat.
3. There is a month-plus wait for the new Governor to be sworn in.
4. In that interim, the existing GOP-led state legislature is trying to push through new rules and laws stripping the Governor of some of his powers.

Fucking hell, can that be blocked or undone once the governor takes his seat?

It's not clear if the new incoming legislature would have the votes needed to overturn the rule change.

So basically they lose the seat so they gimp the position until they win it back and then restore the power? I've never seen this kind of thing done so openly, are they desperate or do they just not care. Has trump normalised this kind of behavior?
