Thread and article. This is why it's so important for Abrams, etc. to keep doing the work they're doing.

 

 

This is why not dumping the filibuster is so assinine. HR1 is the most important piece of legislation at this point.

That's the most upsetting part of the whole thing. Joe Manchin is very wealthy, and I imagine Sinema is doing alright as well - they don't have any real reason to care about stopping brutal voter suppression laws. They are set. Damn the rest of us.

I really do not believe Manchin and Sinema are keen to be spotlit as blocking the Voting Rights Act.

We'll get there. I suspect that the plan is to get the Rescue plan passed and let people start seeing the benefits then pivot to the VRA and probably an infrastructure plan. That's when the filibuster will go.

The article feels navel-gazing and pointless, but I do agree with them (and yes, Dolly probably would too) that it's not a good idea to try to deify her or to make her into some way of being. Of course most people don't do that, but as the years pass, I notice that various political sites and culture sites have been writing to smaller and smaller audiences.

 

I'm sure soon enough we will have Twitter trends demanding we "cancel" Dolly (probably because she says she doesn't know kpop, or something). The good news is Dolly won't give a [!@#$%^&*].

The voter suppression continues, even as puff pieces about Manchin and his bipartisanship continue to be belched out:

 

 

Meanwhile, your latest reminder of what horrible people the Bushes are (and always were):
