Swamp gives Devin Nunes a new reason to snicker

Uh-oh.  Wasn’t it just weeks ago that the Washington swamp declared House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, a California Republican, a goner in his re-election effort?

Here’s what the headline on The Hill looked like less than a month ago last April: “Election forecaster: Nunes seat no longer ‘safe’ Republican.”

The article gushes about how Nunes had a Democratic challenger for his House seat and the challenger had raised more than a million dollars. His seat was no longer…safe!  Oooh, scary, scary.

Turns out it was all baloney.

Here’s the new headline, from the Washington Examiner: “Devin Nunes’ fundraising explodes amid aggressive defense of Trump from Russia probe.”

The fact that the fundraising “exploded” suggests that such a new development quite possibly was a reaction to the earlier headline calling Nunes a goner.  If it was, it’s a classic case of backfire, and it’s pretty snicker-worthy, given that Democrats’ attempts to alter perceptions of Devin Nunes came right back to bite them in the butt.

Now Nunes is rolling in the dough.  Thanks, Dems.
