      Look, don't get angry at me. I wasn't the one convincing you that a 50/50 split in the Senate and a five or six vote majority in the House was going to give you carte blanche to pass whatever dream agenda seeped into your mind. You convinced yourself of that.

      You guys had something like 58-42 in the Senate and 250+ seats in the House when Obama took over and you weren't able to push anything more through than a crappy health insurance bill.

      Honestly, it was my intention to wait a few weeks before the inevitable bubble popping that I was going to have to do, just so everyone here could enjoy the well-earned win, but jeebus.
      Still a doosh, I see.

      • I read something interesting about the 50:50 split. That they negotiated some sort of shared power back when the GOP held the white house with 50:5 senate. Is all of this hoopla about committees part of that agreement?

        • May be. I read where Shumer was pre-supposing that they'd run things the way they were run back then, but Mitch ain't having it. Not sure of the ways Turtle Boy wants it different this time.

              Schumer just needs to say, we’ll abide by this until you act like a dick. Then we’re done and I’m going to hang a tire around your neck and light a match.

                Yes. The shared power thing has been done before and no one really has an issue with that but because the Dems have the tiebreaker they control the agenda because they chair the committees. McConnell wants to filibuster that to prevent any of the committees from changing leadership.

                It is a stall tactic...you can't pass any legislation if it doesn't go through committee first. You can't run a committee if they can't even seat a chair. It is ridiculous and petty even by Mitch's standards and it is a stupid overreach. If they are hellbent for leather though then Schumer should force them to actually stand up and filibuster on the floor of the senate. Bowing to the threat of a filibuster is stupid...make Mitch and his old *** caucus read from Old Man and the Sea for 16 hours and crap their pants. That will end this once and for all.

                And then you walk into Manchin's office, shut the door and whip him (legislatively) until he either decides to back you up or shut up and get out of the way. Durbin needs to remind Manchin that he may be from RepubNazistan but he is a Democrat and it is time to start acting like one. And if he is not willing to do what must be done then he best hope WV doesn't come calling for pork because the Dems are going Kosher baby!



                edit: Also the delay leaves the GOP in the majority of some committees until they reorganize. https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/...ibuster-gambit

                  • Psychopaths.

                    New security measures outside the U.S. House chamber prevented a Republican lawmaker from bringing a gun onto the House floor Thursday.

                    Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), who has repeatedly flouted the magnetometers that were installed near the House chamber after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, set off the metal detectors while trying to enter. When an officer with a metal detector wand scanned him, a firearm was detected on Harris’s side, concealed by his suit coat. Police refused to let Harris in, and the officer signaled a security agent that Harris had a gun on him by motioning toward his own firearm.

                    HuffPost witnessed the interaction and later confirmed with a Capitol official that Harris was carrying a gun.

                    HuffPost watched Harris try to get another member to take the gun from him so he could go vote. The member, Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.), told Harris he didn’t have “a license” and refused to hold the weapon for him.

                    • Bat Boy declarers war on Dump.

                      National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Rick Scott (R-Fla.) said Thursday that he will back incumbent GOP senators against Trump-backed primary challengers, including members of the former president’s family.

                      “I’m supporting incumbents,” Scott told reporters on Capitol Hill, asked about chatter of Ivanka Trump mounting a primary challenge against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

                      Pressed if that that was his stance regardless of former President Trump, who has vowed to support 2022 primary challenges to some incumbents, and if he would specifically support Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) against a Trump-backed challenger, Scott reiterated that he was supporting Senate GOP incumbents.

                      The NRSC typically supports Republican incumbents but Scott’s comments come as Trump has threatened to drive a wedge into GOP politics during the 2022 cycle, when Republicans are defending 20 seats.

                      Trump has specifically threatened to support a primary challenge against Thune, after the No. 2 GOP senator warned that efforts to overturn the Electoral College vote in Congress would fail.

                      Trump vowed as he departed Washington that he would “be back in some form.”
