In Sausalito overlooking S.F. Bay with my uncle, Lucky Strike nonfilters and a case of Bud. Those splendid days are long gone.

Ugh!! Tired of this fucking depressing shit! Later. I

In this case I would hesitate to assign all blame to the progressives. In this case many of the Dems contributing to the current gridlock are characterized as moderates or centrists. Watching the Democrats prove the Republican's assertion that the Dems do not know how to govern is rather painful. There are a whole lot of issues sitting out there, like increasing taxes on the rich, that poll very well across the political spectrum. It would make sense to use them. But noooo.

comment failed before. This is my second try.


I agree with you about House moderates. Then again, for progressives to sabotage the infrastructure bill if Manchin and Sinema refuse to sign on to the full 3.5 also seems foolhardy.


Democrats want to govern, but are afraid to rule; Republicans are desperate to rule, but uninterested in governance. And therein lieth the problem.

You say it in so many fewer words than I would have used. Well done.

Extremely foolish it will be. So they will probably do it.
