    Greg Gianforte's election result

    This will be interesting, though I have no idea what being wailed on involves.
    “He took me to the ground,” Jacobs said by phone from the back of an ambulance. “I think he wailed on me once or twice ... He got on me and I think he hit me ... This is the strangest thing that has ever happened to me in reporting on politics.”

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...jacobs-montana
    Mr Gianforte is a Republican billionaire with less common sense than is needed in a congressperson.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Wailed at..... is probably being shouted at.......................but that is what has to happen at news conferences or else you don't get heard.

    Is this what they call direct action ?

    "Wailed on" is a way of saying "Beat upon"

    "When Mama caught him, she wailed on him with the willow switch"

    "The boys caught up with him and wailed on him til he was black and blue."

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out in votes. Will the victim benefit or will the aggressor? My guess is that the aggressor benefits.

    Probably, you are correct. The guy's supporters will spin local media to show this as their crusader finally giving that libtard the thrashing that Hillary and her ilk so richly deserve.

    The three major local newspapers retracted their endorsements of Gianforte, but refused to endorse the other candidate.

    I doubt many voters will change their minds. It's not like he kicked someone's grandmother or got busted selling heroin.

    Re: Greg Gianforte's election result

    I wonder just how many people who can not stomach either candidate will not vote?

    Who's the other candidate?

    Why are there only two?
