Madison Cawthorn Wins Election, Becomes Youngest House Member in Decades

Source: Yahoo News

Madison Cawthorn has won the election for North Carolina’s 11th congressional district, becoming the youngest member of the House in decades.

At 25 years old, Cawthorn is at the minimum legal age to serve in the House. Cawthorn will replace former North Carolina congressman Mark Meadows, who resigned in order to serve as President Trump’s chief of staff. Cawthorn won the district primary against a challenger picked by Meadows and backed by Trump.

“Cry more, lib,” Cawthorn wrote on Twitter after the Associated Press called a victory for the freshman candidate.

When he was 18, Cawthorn was nominated by Meadows for a spot at the U.S. Naval Academy; however, a car crash left him paralyzed from the waist down.

5. That too. And Moe Davis is such a good man. What a loss for all of us but especially

District 11.

Nice going, boneheads.

16. I said this on another board...

"So, there will be progress and improvement for everyone in the 11th district... any moment now... I mean, he is so sure he is capable of handling the issues that the western NC'er has to deal with thanks to a life of privilege and wealth... should happen any time now... just waiting for the 'second coming' that will take place in Yancey county.... any second..."

(that's not exactly what I said, but that is basically it... basically...)
(five cool points if you can name that movie)

17. I'm a movie buff but you've got me.

Clues or better yet what’s the movie?

18. I was not sure if anyone would get it but...

I tossed it in there anyway. It is from 'Army Of Darkness', and it is what Ashe says to the wise man when he returns with the Necronomicon and is questioned if he said the proper incantation to keep the army of the dead in the ground. One of my all time favorite movies.

Much aloha to you!

6. Wisdom begins after age 50

and it accelerates as one ages and learns how parts of the world are inter-connected.

A 25 year old has no business being elected to Congress. We fill seats with the zealotry of youth and the brains of a robot. Same for court seats, and Court seats. Government is no longer a self-correcting mechanism, it's an assembly line.

19. That's what I thought right? He's just another Gaetz, Collins, Jordan pipsqueak

With a low IQ and a bad attitude on some Koch bro’s payroll. Cretin.

Any chance of a recount?

8. He was rejected by Naval Academy BEFORE the car accident. Dropped out

of college after one semester. He’s uneducated, knows only how to repeat right wing talking points, and this will be his first job.

12. And then, Reich-wing Patrick Henry College...

Unaccredited Patrick Henry College, that is.

It’s usually dismissed as “Homeschool U.” or just “that crazy right-wing place …no, not Bob Jones … no, not Liberty, not Hillsdale … the other one!

The Reich loves this shitty school. Gianni Thomas (yeah; as in Clarence Thomas) was affiliated with it years ago at their Patrick Henry Center.

Another grad of theirs? Alyssa Farah, Kayleigh McEnany’s #2, and the daughter of the founder of World Nut Daily, Joseph Farah.

10. Asswipe

I became disabled late in life, and I have no problem calling him an asshole, even if he’s in a wheelchair.

Republicans recruit assholes like this because they hide behind the sympathy we give the less-fortunate. Fuck him, and the wheelchair he rolled up on. I use a wheelchair and have no problem calling a disabled Nazi a Nazi.

11. Handicapped people can be pricks like anyone else.

Case in point.

This guy was an entitled little douchebag before his accident and that hasn’t changed just because he’s now in a wheelchair.

14. Gov. Abbot of Texas, for example

he's been in a wheelchair because of an accident years ago: hasn't made him a decent human.
