Our Failed Political Press ™ Fails Us Again

“For ME?!”
Joe Manchin’s demands must be met!

The Build Back Better/reconciliation bill is still a moving target, no one knows what is in it  or how it will be financed. But what we do know is pretty straight forward:

  • Only 48 /100 Senators are supporting it
  • Our Failed Political Press ™ is horse-racing the reporting
  • Manchinema are terrible Democrats

Also, Our Failed Political Press ™ has so normalized Republican intransigence that none of their reporting has mentioned the GOP blockade and made the entire storyline an extended dance-remix of their hit, Democrats in Disarray.

What I do think is that while there will be some great things in the bill, everyone will be disappointed by some priority left behind.

That’s a pretty solid assessment. The last line about a second Trump administration should send shivers down our collective spines, and is a good reminder that whenever this sausage is made, the Left still has to pass a bill that defends democracy.

Bet me that our FPP ™ will whiff that story.

    Meanwhile, anticipating what I said yesterday about the danger of “Fox News,” a/k/a Der Völkischer Beobachter, there’s this:
