I notice Dave Wasserman has spent months going out of his way to tell his followers the worst scenarios for Democrats in the House. He's probably right, but, like many Beltway pundits who make $$$ off the GOP, there's a glimmer in his tweets that makes me think he will be happy to be right.

There are plenty of other good alternatives. I'm surprised, though; it sounded like Murkowski could've given.

Cue the "Democrats in disarray" bull from the usual suspects ...


Eh, Trump and others lost a few nominees. It happens. The Beltway was just obsessed with Tanden because both they and the left had feuded with her, and because she was a prominent woman of color.

Good points. I did what I didn't want to, fell into the "every step or setback is a game changer!" mentality.

I have to admit I don't really care that Tanden is gone. I just hate how it went. Manchin is such a phony and you just know it was because he was pissed about her tweet about his daughter and her price gauging and nothing else.  Not that I ever cared much for Manchin but this seals my opinion of him,


I read that Reverend Barber recruited a ton of what we all refer to as essential workers  from West Virginia to approach Manchin on the min wage increase and even Barber said he was frustrated because no matter how many stories folks from West Virginia told, not one thing touched Manchin enough to make him budge.

There are, like, a half-dozen "Law & Order" episodes contained within that report on Jackson.  And you know you're trash when your life is like even one episode of L&O.

Ronny Jackson was so awful that Jon Tester risked his political career to keep him out of heading the VA. I wish I were surprised he failed his way into Congress, but then the GOP side of Congress is full of criminals and morons.

    • My parents got the Pfizer too and have been fine. I'm no scientist in the least but judging by news of some recent trials against a couple variants, Pfizer seems to be the current gold standard and Moderna is also very good.   The UK system is very much 'book the appointment, go to the vaccine location, and you get what they give you on the day.' Astra Zeneca has been officially associated with some blood clots but, unlike J&J, the UK is unwilling to pause its rollout.
    • My parents got the Pfizer and have been fine. They've been out and about with mask with no problems. I was vaccinated with the Moderna (not my choice). I've been doing well going out sparingly with mask with no problems.    My aunt and uncle took the Johnson & Johnson with no problems.   If you feel uneasy wait for the Moderna or Pfizer to be available.    Here in Texas the Moderna is more available one. They've stopped giving the Johnson & Johnson.
    • Jesus. So Brandi & Kary manage to duck accountability and uncomfortable questions because of 'audio issues'? WTF? We've been waiting all season to see them get called out because god knows Stephanie isn't going to do it for us!   I swear, Dallas cannot get out of its own damn way sometimes. I love and support the show, I make a point to watch because I think it is worth saving. However, it is making its own cancellation bed with this. Reunion should have been about rescuing this season's RHOD!     LOL it is seriously Bad News Day in the RH universe today.        LOL Gamble is overhyped, though she carried the show on her back during the earlier seasons. No replacement for Gina and Lydia, however.   And Jackie... 
    • I've been asked to book a vaccine appointment! I'm pro-vaccines and ready to do so. However, I am getting increasingly nervous about the news reports regarding blood clots + Astra Zeneca. I am in the UK and will probably be offered the AZ jab as they are saving the Moderna ones for the Under-30s. I'm actually not sure what to do as I'm starting to feel stressed about it. I'm not sure I can request my choice of jab, (i.e. Pfizer, which looks fairly effective against some of the variants).
