I don’t know if I should take this as sign of Death of the Filibuster or not, but it seems like something is up:
There is ZERO chance that they will find 10 Patriots in the GOP.
If the dynamic dumbos (apologies to Batman and Robin) are aligned with the Democrats and fighting the obstruction of the Coup Klux Klan, I find it a weird, hopeful sign that they might just sigh, and eventually come-around to saying that the filibuster needs to go away —and Dawg only knows that the Democrats from the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan are trying to give her cover:
Meanwhile Politico/Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) tells us that Chuck Schumer is applying maximum pressure for the commission:
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is planning to hold a vote before the Memorial Day recess on whether to establish a bipartisan commission to investigate the events of Jan. 6, according to several senators.
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin said Schumer has indicated it will be on the floor this week, before adding the caveat that “everything is subject to the amendment process.”
And of course, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell would rather run the blockade:
So it looks like all the Kabuki players are cast to kill The Stupid Coup Commission which will then give Manchin and Sinema an excuse to kill the filibuster with a sigh, “we tried to find bipartisanship on the most basic of bills.”
