In a move that shocked absolutely no one, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell has killed the bipartisan January 6 Insurrection Commission. The vote was 54 to 35, with just 6 Republicans — Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Bill Cassidy, Rob Portman, Lisa Murkowski and Ben Sasse — voting in favor.
Another 11 senators —Republicans AND Democrats— didn’t even show up for the vote:
They couldn’t be bothered, they had vacay plans. So much for the 10 Patriots that Sen. Manchin was looking for.
My senator left this statement explaining herself:
Kyrsten Sinema has said nothing.
And Joe Manchin is concerned, very concerned:
“I’m very disappointed, very frustrated that politics has trumped — literally and figuratively — the good of the country.” — Sen. Joe Manchin
The Coup Klux Klan hates America, hates democracy, and hates us. Never, ever forget that people. They would overthrow the gubmint in a heartbeat and go have hamburders with a common mango-hued dictator.
