Fightin' GOPer Greg Gianforte wins Montana House seat big despite body slamming reporter who deserved it

Memo to Squishy Paul Ryan and Marshmallow Mitch McConnell:
Start acting like Greg Gianforte! 
Start acting like you both got a pair!  Start acting like you control both Houses of Congress and move the Trump agenda forward with boldness and put your timidity to the side because it angers Republican voters who sent you to Washington.  You don't have to body slam reporters or slap Wolf Blitzer in the face.  Just do the job, support President Trump and stop acting like a bunch of pussies!
CNN reports Republican Greg Gianforte has won the special election for Montana's open US House seat, CNN projects, defeating Democrat Rob Quist and capping off a whirlwind final 36 hours of the campaign that saw Gianforte being charged for allegedly assaulting a reporter. 

In his acceptance speech, Gianforte apologized by name to Ben Jacobs, the Guardian reporter who accused the Republican of "body-slamming" him and breaking his glasses. 

"When you make a mistake, you have to own up to it," Gianforte told his supporters at his Election Night rally in Bozeman. "That's the Montana way."

Saying he was "not proud" of his behavior, he added, "I should not have responded the way I did, for that I'm sorry. I should not have treated that reporter that way, and for that I'm sorry, Mr. Ben Jacobs."
