Only people who don’t follow politics didn’t know what Manchin was about. He’s fought against Democrats and supported Republican candidates in WV for decades. But Sinema flat-out lied to the people who supported her when she swore to be a progressive.

And neither of them are fully to blame for what’s taking place. How many Republicans would it take to make good things happen in a snap? And how many of them do you think there are who simply won’t do it because McConnell is telling them not to? Again. Murkowski? Romney? Collins? Sasse? Burr? Toomey? Any two of them could bring everything back into balance again.

So, who is worse than Manchin? McConnell. And all of those named. Not so hard after all, it appears. It truly is a big club, for boys and girls. Young and old.
