To be fair, McConnell is generally on the side of evil and the wrong side of history, so it's an easy mistake to make.

I really hate that I even know who some senator from West Virginia is.

You'd think with the number of times Dems have been suckered by McConnell, Manchin would've seen it coming.

Manchin feels the same right now.

He finally got to sit at the cool kids table but didn't know how to play the game to stay there.

The point is to make the Ds look bad.  They'll spin the hell out of obstructionist Ds on right-wing media.  He's just helping out his pals.

"What I didn't expect is that Mitch McConnell, my Republican friends would be signing up with Bernie or trying to get the same outcome by not passing permitting reform."

They're not your friends.  You've been useful to them in helping to impede the Democratic legislative agenda.  That's it.

If Republicans can openly call themselves racists and fascists, I don't see why we can't openly call ourselves socialists.
 
2022-09-27 8:02:36 PM  
I don't know who you people are, getting off disparaging Manchin like that. Every criticism of him is literally exactly the same as saying you wish that McConnell was Majority Leader instead of Schumer.

There were some VERY interesting bra ads with video. I had no idea that bra fittings were that important!

/ if you're wearing the wrong bra size, it's....purple....monkey....dishwasher...bounce, bounce, bounce, bouncy, bounce

Yeah, they've gotten terrible lately.  I especially hate the giant ones that take up half the screen almost every time I try to click the drop down to change tabs.

McConnell is working with Bernie Sanders and the news is that Manchin is surprised at this?

Who isn't surprised at this? Who woke up today and said, "Yeah, today is the day I'm going to see Sanders and McConnell walking hand in hand, like the love birds they are"?
 
2022-09-27 8:10:23 PM  
Christ, Joe, you farking moronic tool. McConnell doesn't give a shiat about your crappy bill. He DOES want to shut the government down, and since your bullshiat is attached, it's going down as collateral damage.

He cares because he will get paid a lot less.

It's funny how Manchin already wrote off Bernie Sanders as someone not worth negotiating with, but will crawl over broken glass to gently nuzzle McConnell's nutsack.

So much THIS.  The only way I will click on a Fox News link is if it's a link to Rupert Murdoch's obituary.

that's not what i was getting at

Sanders self-identifies as a Democratic Socialist. They leave off the "Democratic" part intentionally, to try to paint him as what *they think* socialism is (they're so dumb that they actually believe it's equivalent to communism)...

The important take home is actually the change from semi-functional politics where it was ultimately a game of favors, to a game of pain --- it's now about trying to hurt other people, at least for the Rs. Not that aspects of payback and grudges are completely new, not at all. But there did use to be more.

Manchin blinked, agreed to take it out of the spending bill. Schumer blamed the GOP for scrapping a bipartisan agreement. So the government won't shut down but Manchin is now an even looser cannon than before, I surmise.

Seems to be a common trait among the sh*ttier Democrats.

Oh, good. I was hoping someone would get around to this. I couldn't bring myself to make a reference to McConnell being uncircumcised.

Oh, yeah, I definitely wouldn't have gotten that from your statement. OK.

I think this is another Tell Mitch knows he ain't gonna be majority leader:  If he thought he'd still need Manchin after November, Manchin would still be at the cool kids table.  And - if Mitch thought he'd have some close votes he'd at least still give Manchin some bait.

Manchin is gonna go back to being at the bottom of the pile, just this time on his own side because they all gotta be 'fark that guy'.

Basically now this means that West Virginia will continue to burn coal instead of natural gas.

Great job assholes. So progressive
