So he's claiming to be dangerously naïve rather than just plain stupid?

That's a bold strategy.

To be fair, they didn't defend Manchin himself so much as they claim that any criticism of him will result in him switching parties and it's your fault for hurting his feelings.

More like "anyone who criticizes Manchin needs to redirect it at Republicans or else they're just agreeing with Republicans."

If that doesn't make sense, imagine you walked in on someone balls deep in a sheep and they told you to look at all the sheep they didn't fark. Seeing who I'm replying to, this may be a bad analogy.

So does this mean Democrats will put Manchin in his place for being ineffective and wasting their time, pushing him to the back bench and making sure he votes for their bills without complaint now that it's clear that he's full of shiat?

LOL of course not, they're still going to let him control the Senate.

No.

There are people who point out that Manchin is probably as "liberal" as you're gonna get out of WV, and that he's still better than an -actual- Republican (if not by much), but I haven't seen anyone here actually say they like the guy.

What every Democratic Senator/House member who worships at the altar of false bipartisanship needs to be harassed with every time they try to say anything:

"What, exactly, do the Republicans have to do to make you admit that they are not good faith participants in our democracy, and that pursuing 'bipartisanship' with them is a fool's venture? Because they've already tried to sponsor a terrorist attack/coup with the intent of having your murdered for being a Democrat."

Manchin:  "Give me what I want! It'll get the Republicans on board!"
Democratic establishment:  "Sounds good."

[Republicans predictably do not in the slightest support the bill]

Manchin:  "Ah! Well, nonetheless, give me what I want."

I think this is one of the reasons so many Farkers dislike you--your personal attacks. You love to tell people what they believe and what they think, and in hyperbolic language at that, and it's just not really your place to do that, ever. Criticize what people say, criticize how they argue, but as soon as you cross over into trying to tell people you know better about themselves than they do, you cross a line.

I'm listening to the Steve Bannon proceedings on my computer while I have MSNBC on in the background because I wanted to see if Biden woke up and pushed for ending the filibuster, at least for voting rights, in his speech today (he did not). MSNBC has shown none of the proceedings in Congress but they managed to cut in just to hear Liz Cheney, then immediately cut away.

All they do is promote Republicans and conservatism. It's farking gross.

I get personally attacked here all the time - yesterday AAAGGGHH trolled me all through a few threads. I don't whine like a little biatch about it, because there are more important things going on.

Facebook.

Honestly it could have been them.  They made a huge push to make video content the big thing on their platform.  They drove many news organizations, national and local, to make exactly this sort of video a primary source of content making some bold claim about increasing their (stations/media companies) engagement, revenue, or ROI.

Long story short, a lot of news stations dropped a lot of money to implement this but the benefits FB claimed would happen never panned out and now we are all stuck with this crappy product.

Anyway, until proven otherwise, I'm of the mindset that Manchin and Sinema are deliberate sabotage to allow democrats to defuse responsibility for not getting anything done while simultaneously protecting the status quo of our current hellish socio-economic system.

Have some snake tiddies.
