She is pretty shielded and not up for re-election for a while and instead of not making waves (or shifting farther Left cause that seems to be what her constituents want on many of these issues) she shifts Right and basically dares a very motivated voting block to vote her out.

    Weird gambit...because the Right leaning people aren't voting for her so ****ing off the Left is political suicide.

      Is it really though when it is still nothing that gets passed? I get in theory he's better and in practice he'd likely be better...but when the Dem majority still can't get anything done because of people like Manchin...it's a moot point as to who is "in charge."
      Yes, because if McConnell were still in charge, none of Biden's appointments get confirmed and we continue to bleed judges and run an executive with interim and acting heads.

        I do get that and yes it does matter so on that I concede. This **** is just so frustrating.
        Don't be frustrated with Manchin, he's the best we can get from WVa.

        Be mad at the North Carolina candidate who couldn't help flirting with staffers, the Iowa Democratic party who continues to run people with a single digit charisma rating, and Maine voters like Drew who continue their love affair with Collins because she's oh so concerned.

        Those are 3 seats that could've made Manchin and Sinema meaningless.

              And to think this came about because Brooks was dodging service.


              It's astounding that a congressman would think it's possible to get away with this in 2021.

                To be fair, it seems like there aren’t much in the way of consequences these days

                  Bingo.

                  In a black box, even if Manchin sides 50% w/ Dems, he's way, way ahead of the GOP who would replace him.

                  WVa's other reps/sen Biden-vote Score:
                  McKinley (H) - 23.8%
                  Miller (H) - 10%
                  Mooney (H) - 9.5%
                  Capito (S) - 69% (Worth noting these are actual votes, not including the politics taking place behind the scenes)
                  Manchin (S) - 100%



                  Edit: WVa's CPVI is R+23. This is a unicorn. These just don't happen.
