Don't feel bad, I've picked up a thing or two about congressional procedure in 15 years of covering it.

And unlike with Manchin, a Democrat like Gallego who wins a primary in Arizona has a very solid chance of winning statewide in the general, unless there's a huge wave against Dems.

The 7th news alert that Yellen was confirmed was a bit much.

It’s not a win - but it’s rare for mcconnell to dig in and take an L

@james_roe  heh, well, I’ve been covering the nuke the filibuster fight literally for 11 years (as @jamespmanley  can grumpily tell you) so if it’s actually a few months away, yeah, that’s a big deal. Guess it depends on your perspective.

@mattyglesias  You gotta do voting rights and do it fast. Do it fast and it won’t be controversial. Could easily be the difference in control of congress, no matter what else happens.

@beccarast  The first 50-100 pages of Master of the Senate are a good short history and then the actual rules are pretty readable and not terribly long.

@mattyglesias  Who says B? That makes zero sense with a 50-seat majority It’s C: Get Manchin and Sinema on board for the agenda and get rid of the filibuster to implement it. It’s not easy but that’s what it is.

When the chips were down on #ForceTheVote  where were the boogaloo boys? Just like the nurses union, not real allies. #ScamKlan

5 yo woke up with a fever. CVS Minute Clinic says she has flu, prescribes tamaflu. It’s the New Year so the new deductible kicks in. Pharmacy wants $198 for the tamaflu. If we didn’t have it, like millions don’t, she’d go without it, putting her life at risk. Barbaric.

Confederates weren’t just vicious racists and traitors, they were also losers. They lost a single election and quit the country, then lost the war and pretended to surrender so they could try terrorism instead. Losers and cowards.

Fun fact about Bill Gates and capitalism. Decades ago he retired and began giving all his money away. He’s famous for that. Today he’s worth more money than the day he stopped working. Neat trick.

One way to keep children from not dying in prison camps is to not put children in prison camps

Kavanaugh even lied about his connections to Yale: “I have no connections there. I got there by busting my tail.” See this yearbook. He was legacy; his grandfather went there. What pathetic perjury.

The planning for the January 16 and 17 militia events in DC is quite specific. They want at least 15k people and if they achieve that they plan to block Democrats from entering the Capitol, allowing only Republicans through. Here’s where they plan to meet

In August '93, the month Tara Reade left Biden's office, a woman called the Larry King show saying her daughter had problems at a prominent senator's office but did not want to go to the press about it. The woman was Reade's late mother.
