Kylo Jen has been writing this same "call Manchin's bluff" column for the last month. She's like Lucy to Manchin's Schroeder. He keeps telling her to drop dead, she looks at him for five seconds, then goes right back to planning their wedding. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…

Perry Bacon is such a tedious hack as a columnist. He's indistinguishable from Boot and Rubin the way he regurgitates platitudes about "Republicans bad, democracy in danger, blah blah blah." 538 benefited from some addition by subtraction when he left. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…
Yeah, about the whole "pressuring Joe Manchin" thing. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…
It makes your head spin hearing progressives begging George Bush and Liz Cheney for help. "Help us, Dubya Wan, you're our only hope." LOL. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/…

I wonder how Joe Manchin feels knowing that his colleagues believe he can be bullied, browbeaten, and intimidated into backing down and falling in line. Which is clearly the subtext of this article about Chuck Schumer's plans to force the filibuster issue. nytimes.com/2021/06/04/us/…
This is how it will go. Senate Dems will rile the base up with the failed votes, then depart for two weeks for Independence Day, come back for a couple of weeks, and then leave for Labor Day, having done nothing. Which will just rile the base up more. nytimes.com/2021/06/04/us/… Image
"But at the same time, Mr. Manchin and Ms. Sinema have proved less pliable than they had hoped."

Who'd have guessed that watching "The West Wing" would give people a false understanding of how Washington works. nytimes.com/2021/06/04/us/…

Democrats will get nothing and like it.
It's not even Memorial Day and reporters are already writing stories about Democrats are running out of time to pass Joe Biden's agenda. And Democrats agree they're running out of time. Biden's hundred days are long gone. politico.com/news/2021/05/2…
"Winning that support will be an even tougher lift as the Democrats' most vulnerable members turn their eye to the fast-approaching midterms."

Fast-approaching! Again, it's not even Memorial Day of the year before the midterms. politico.com/news/2021/05/2…
