10. Michael Moore on the ReTHUG slim majority
Wed Dec 6, 2023, 01:49 PM
Dec 2023

"Hailed just weeks ago as the new conquerors on their way to victory — 'REPUBLICANS WILL TAKE CONTROL OF THE SENATE WITH FOUR NEW SEATS!' 'REPUBLICANS WILL WIN THE HOUSE BY 50 SEATS!!' 'BIDEN IS OVER! CRIME! INFLATION! TRUMP IN 2024!'" wrote Moore. "Whoops. They couldn’t defeat a single sitting Democrat in the United States Senate! In fact, the Democrats took one of theirs, something that rarely happens in a first midterm.

The new House majority, Moore, wrote, is "anemic" and "weak" — and there are several reasons why Republicans may not hold it for long.

"Republicans who barely won in a blue district can read the writing on the wall — if they want to stay in Congress, in order to win, they are going to have to switch parties. If just one or two do that, it could make all the difference in the Democrats being back in charge," wrote Moore. Furthermore, their majority is slim enough that they could be vulnerable if any vacancies or special elections occur.

I love Michael Moore
