Or we could thank them for not accepting Mitch's offer to switch parties and make him majority leader.

Reality is irrelevant to those who demand, like a toddler, to stay up well past their bedtime.

They really think that "the Democrats" have the power to do anything they want, and the fact that it doesn't get done is that they're all Manchins and Sinemas, and don't really want to do it. It never really occurs to them that the system is designed to work with two parties operating with good intentions and not merely one party operating with good intentions and the other party trying to destroy the system and install the Fourth Reich.

They will blame everyone but the loudest progressives for an imperfect outcome, and refuse to support the very people who can prevent actual disaster. They hated Hillary, too -- and we have tasted a morsel of the outcome when the perfect is made the enemy of the good. They'll do it again, and I don't have any idea how to stop them.

I am, however, glad to be no longer young.
