We looked at this once and instantly believed it was real. This is MSNBC after all.
I’ve looked at this a dozen times and still can’t believe it’s real. pic.twitter.com/bQ0cgFqwoN

Congratulations, Jeff Flake, you’re a maverick. It’s a shame you chose to retire, being a maverick and all. But Mitt Romney should be proud that his op-ed calling out President Trump’s character earned him some face time on MSNBC.

Is Ben Sasse just Jeff Flake with his hair parted on the other side?
— Bill the Lizard (@lizardbill) January 3, 2019
Serious question here: are we sure that Flake and Sasse aren't the same person, or reasonable facsimiles of each other? #Replicas

Huh. I guess "maverick" doesn't mean what it used to.

Man, the meaning of that word has seriously been diluted.

Mavericks as in conservative impotents? Or, perhaps, talkers not walkers? Good lord, at least be a maverick for reals.

where are the air quotes for the (mis)use of "mavericks" here? pic.twitter.com/xoqg0sVA0u

It makes perfect sense. MSM calls a Republican who votes against party -“maverick” – a cool/positive term. Has media ever called a Dem who voted against party a “maverick”? https://t.co/w1aQZbW6cH

Actually MSNBC calls them centrists and "reasonable moderates" Guessing you don't watch MSNBC much… but it is the place to find Third Way, No Labels and House Problem Solvers Caucus hacks on tv to punch at the left.

Has there ever been a pivotal Democrat that voted against their party in any important legislation?
— Groundshy (@groundshy) January 3, 2019
Dems never vote against party. It’s the one thing they do really good. Republicans are too spineless and inept to do what they do. Think dems are gonna cave now that they have the House? Nope.
