    Well, AA has been shitting all over Cornell, the Clowns and labor unions over on his Conquered People thread. You may HAVE to respond to that.

    At the same time his son makes his living selling CRT/America is White Nationalist Educational crap. Which is not a conflict.

    There was barely a week that went by over the last 4 years where you didn’t bitch about something more trivial.

    Ok I’ll bite. What’d Garland say today that was outrageous? I can’t find anything about it on the front page of Fox so it must not be in the top ten liberal outrages of the day. But still, I’m here to listen and help. The Doctor is in.

    The important thing to remember is that Garland is a moderate.

    I don't believe Sinema or Manchin needs to caucus with either party. I imagine Sinema in particular can have any Committee assignment she wants from the Rs. Manchin is already top of the seniority list for the Ds, so he would be giving up more. Remember, the Ds follow seniority for committee assignments rather than the Rs relying on competence (or so they say).

    After watching Garland today, this country can be grateful he never made it to the SC.

    Amazing. One of the two witnesses used by the Nevada GOP as "proof" of voter fraud has been arrested for voting illegally for his dead wife.

    I think we're getting closer and closer to having it scientifically proven that Republicans who believe in widespread, rampant voter fraud suffer from the classic psychological defense mechanism known as "projection".

    I dont get it

    if manchin switched to repub or sinema is more likely--hell shes more conservative the murtkowski or susan collins

    anyway obviously it changes everything if one swing to repub this year--mcconnell would be majority leader

    Agree with POY vote that was good

    If he switched to I and said he's caucusing with the R's then, yes, Schumer's reign over the Senate is dead as disco and all the appointments go through McConnell and the Rs. I won't allow myself to dream about it.

    Manchin could go (I), but it would depend on who he chooses to caucus with to have any real effect. I suppose he could choose to caucus with R's on some matters, but D's on others? What would really matter is if his vote would give R's a 51-49 edge in selecting Senate leadership, and committee chairman assignments. Could he end Schumer's reign as Majority leader, and switch it back to McConnell? That would also allow R's to set the Senate agenda.

    Right. Switching to I doesn't matter unless they caucus with the Rs like Geezer said. The probability of that is essentially zero for Sinema. Maybe Manchin would flip but it's a scenario I don't want get my hopes up over.

    Manchin was asked directly yesterday about the Mother Jones article and called it a bunch of bullshit. Then today he changed his story a bit and said he told the other Dems if he embarrassed them, he would switch to Independent but still caucus with them, like Bernie and Angus King do.

    I don't know if he even plans to run again in 2024. He'll be 77 and his family is loaded with money.

    I don't know if Sinema really cares either. But if she does, I think she's in way more danger of a primary threat, and could try saving herself by switching parties. But that's a stretch.

If that happens, then there will be outrage by the "takers" that will make Trump's election pale by comparison. In real terms, it would stop a lot of the confirmation of activist judges to the Federal Judiciary.
    It would be like Michigan beating Ohio State.... 5 years in a row. So it's not going to happen.
