I’m laughing, but it is a bitter laugh:
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), one of the filibuster’s strongest supporters in the Democratic Party, seemed aghast that his GOP colleagues are on track to block the [January 6 Insurrection Commission].
“So disheartening. It makes you really concerned about our country,” Manchin said. Asked if that is an abuse of the filibuster: “I’m still praying we’ve still got 10 good solid patriots within that conference.”
Show us the 10 you think you have, Joe, otherwise shut your hole. There are not 10 solid patriots in the Republican caucus. There’s probably not 10 solid patriots in the party, period. It is a cult now.
