  • Re: 115th Congress. In Bridge, Can Hearts be Trumped? In Spades!

    Without actually looking at it and based only upon Kep's initial paragraph it sounds as though it evaluates how often a senator votes against the most common leanings of his/her constituents?

      No, because the state and district lean are not based on the votes being measured. Now, for example, the GOP may propose a measure that f-cks over the people of a red state like IN, and the people may be against it. The metric measures the offset between the Member's voting and the contituents' party-weighted voting preference. The fact that a constituency can diverge from its party lean is attested by the fact that Republicans get elected in blue leaning constituencies and vice versa.

        Some of the right-wing agitprop sites are attempting to plant the seed that Manchin might announce a party switch next week. On a political probability scale of 0 to 14, 0 meaning inconceivable and 14 meaning absolute metaphysical certitude, what are odds of this happening?

          That's a real good question. I hope it's bullsh-t, or that at worst Manchin is sticking Schumer up.

            Based on this it seems unlikely since the R's would likely want that vote ASAP.

            Unless they're hoping to get to 49 and then get the party switch to stigginit to the libs in one fell swoop.

            That would be proper Republican behavior.

                Guess he didn't want to serve with his soon to be colleague from next door, Senator Roy Moore! Curious to see how that Alabama primary goes tonight. If Moore wins, look for David Duke to make a Senate bid next.

                    Oh, I fully expect them to nominate an imbecile. Corker could use his brain from time-to-time, so it stands to reason that in the wake of the Dump wave, his successor will have the IQ of a primate. It's a shame that they pander to the female gorillas by nominating a female gorilla. These biddies are doing more to reverse the female empowerment cause than some Republican men are.

                      Actually if some GOP Senator actually follows thru with the campaign promise, I'd be shocked, SHOCKED!!
