The Love Bloat*

Oh, dear, Punchbowl News thought it through, and we might have been too glib yesterday when Senatorette Graham somehow or other caught the Trump-Virus:

“In a 50-50 Senate, every vote is key. The next cloture vote will be to cut off debate on amendments. So we’ll have to see how many senators contract Covid and how long they have to stay on the sidelines (and here’s hoping everyone is ok!) If it’s just Graham, the Senate should be able to proceed with little interruption. If it’s a wider outbreak, then that would, of course, change the dynamic entirely.”

and this plays pretty well into amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell’s plans, per TPM:

…McConnell added that the vigorous amendment process “must not be choked off by any artificial timetable” from Democrats — a warning sign to Democrats that McConnell and other Republicans are trying to eat up the clock while also planning to score political points by introducing amendments that are awkward for Democrats.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hoped to pass the infrastructure bill by the end of the week, but all that rides on there not being a wave of infections.

    Translation: The process must be delayed, prolonged and eventually killed by MY artificial timetable.

    McConnell is pustule. I don’t trust a word he says. Except when he says “nobody ain’t doing nothing unless I have my way, always.” Plus the eternal “I’ll take my toys and go home if I don’t get my way.” Until our Sun goes Red Giant.
