Ah, Democrat butt hurt. There’s nothing like it. Listen to these howls of pain and fury:
- Mehdi Hasan
What’s worse – that Manchin is killing the Biden legislative agenda, and perhaps the future of American democracy too, or that he wasted most of this year dragging this whole thing out to do it *and* wasted half of the time that Dems control Congress and the White House.
- Jennifer ‘pro-voting’ Rubin
If Manchin is no on both BBB and voting, Biden is done. Democracy is hanging by a thread. Hard to think of anyone more destructive
- Wajahat Ali
Entire nation of more than 330 million hijacked & screwed by corporate greed & lobbyists who own a man whose represents a state of 1.8 million people. I hope all of this reflects the need for massive structural reform and change. In its absence we’re a shell of a democracy.
That bald-headed black Congresswoman from Massachusetts, Elvis Presley or whatever it is, was shrieking about Manchin moving the goal posts and not bargaining in good faith and failing Joe Biden. She looked like she wanted to roast him on a spit and eat him for lunch. When Mehdi Hasan, Jennifer Rubin, Wajahat Ali and the bald black chick tell me that, “Democracy is hanging by a thread,” then I’m all in baby. All I want to know is where is the thread? I’ve brought my scissors. Because if this is American democracy then I’m ready to try what’s behind door number two.
I have no idea whether Manchin is as honest as the day is long or as crooked as a corkscrew but he’s ruining Christmas for the evil party and that’s a wonderful gift for me. They adjourned for the year and Joe Manchin made Bernie Sanders sad. He looked and sounded like that old man on his porch yelling at those darn kids who put the bag of flaming dog crap on his welcome mat.
And speaking of crap, Dementia Joe is giving a speech on Tuesday to warn us that omicron will get us if we don’t watch out. Well, he’s too late. Christmas is upon us and he won’t have time to ruin my holiday. After Dr. Jill gets the secret service to clean Joe off with a fire hose, he can be strapped down all snug in his psych ward and electroshocked into catatonia until Valentine’s Day. Sure, we’re stuck with this loser for another three years but at least everyone knows he’s a degenerate crook and we don’t have to pretend we respect him. We can hope that the rest of his agenda is stymied and he’s reduced to yelling at the invisible audience in his virtual West Wing office where he makes the speeches that no one listens to. Hopefully Kamala has a hit put out on him soon and we can start driving her crazy right after the mid-terms.
So maybe Manchin gets panicked and gives in on January Second. Nobody knows. But right now, I’m happy and they’re miserable. I call it a win.
