2 thoughts on BBB/Manchin

Not exactly profound, but if you have any doubt that Manchin is not really a Democrat, consider the fact that he didn't even call Biden or Schumer, and he made his death announcement on F*ing Fox News. We never did have a genuine majority in the Senate, and we should proceed on that basis. I rest my case. 

Second point. Can't help but wonder. Is there something, anything that might induce Lisa Murkowski to change parties, or at least change her vote? She is literally the only Republican I can think of who might conceivably do that. Collins, I'm pretty sure, is far too bought and paid for. And, literally, Portman? nah... Romney?... good luck with that.... there are no others.
