Show Us Your 10 GOP Friends or Shut-Up, Joe Manchin!

Joe Manchin wants more!

All eyes turn towards Joe Manchin as he demands that Democrats capitulate to him or nothing passes the Senate.

The For The People Act advanced out of committee—kinda:

Washington — The Senate on Tuesday advanced S. 1, the For the People Act, setting up a floor vote for the controversial bill. Senators clashed over voting rights and election procedures for hours in a contentious committee meeting to consider amendments for the massive bill…

All nine Republicans voted against the bill, even though some amendments proposed by GOP senators had been adopted.

So, got that, Joe Manchin? The GQP offered amendments to the bill, the amendments were adopted and then en mass all the GQPers voted against the bill that they had just amended.

Chuck Schumer can still bring it to the Senate floor (via some arcane Senate Rule, no doubt), but unless Joe Manchin realizes that the Coup Klux Klan are not negotiating in good faith, this bill will not pass. And then we’re totally eff’ed in the dark.

We’ve been saying since the Rise of the Tools that Manchin needs to show us his 10 GQP friends that will make a bill bipartisan. They don’t exist. Put up or shut-up, Joe.

Important note: if you want to take power away from Joe Manchin, elect more Democrats to the Senate, and that will effectively neuter him. Then —and only then!— get rid of him. If you campaign against Manchin now, you are handing the gavel to amply be-chinned Moscow Mitch. So: solid senate majority first, then primary the eff out of him. The sequence is important.

    It’s not like Manchin is a bright and rising star or anything of the sort. He’s more of a pig in his poke. But his intelligence really comes in doubt when he continues to bleat bipartisanship. It’s over jack, that ship sailed and sunk.
    Moscow Mitch put the bipartisanship rumor to the grave when he said “No, to anything”. Why doesn’t the Democratic party take him at his word?
    We have some wiggle room to get things done by 2022, but we can’t waste any more time negotiating in good faith when they have no such thing to meet us with.
    Don’t let me down (again) Democrats.

      It’s common knowledge that Manchin for quite some time works solely for the benefit of himself and his family at the expense of nearly everyone else. That’s why during his time as both governor, secretary of state and now US senator, he has effectively killed off the Democratic Party there in West Virginia with his shitty political acumen. If nothing else, he has secured a gig with the worthless beltway media since he along with another useless senator, Susan Collins, love to tout the BS centrism of “No Labels” along with their foolish devotion to a bygone era whereby institutions like the antiquated senate still work as the founders intended.

    • Last night, on prime time, we saw a commercial praising Kyrsten Sinema for her brave stance for ‘bipartisanship’ against the tyranny of the leftists power grab.

      It was made by an outfit called onenationamerica.org

      Took some digging but this is Karl Rove’s pac.

    My observation is that Manchin is not really a Democrat. He is a Republican at heart, but knows he could never make it through the primary if he ran as an “R”, so he runs as a “D” with little to no opposition.

    I don’t quite know what to do about West Virginia, but the simple solution to the Arizona problem is turn off the water. There just isn’t enough for everybody. Maybe all that money that could be spent retraining coal miners and bringing WV into the 21st century would be better spent elsewhere.

    It’s not like we Loggers weren’t abandoned when the timber industry dried up.

    Not to worry. A third party will solve all of our problems.
