"SNIP......

“The House on Wednesday took the first major step to respond to the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol, voting mostly along party lines to overhaul the 135-year-old Electoral Count Act, the law that former President Donald Trump tried to exploit that day to overturn his defeat,” the New York Times reports.

“The bill was the most significant legislative answer yet to the riot and the monthslong campaign by Mr. Trump and his allies to invalidate the 2020 presidential election, but it also underscored the lingering partisan divide over Jan. 6 and the former president’s continuing grip on his party.”

1. So now do we all have to kiss Manchin's boot and Sinema's 'Fuck Off' ring

In order to get it thru the Senate?

Or can it be filibustered?

3. Well that's heartening ... but it would mean we need Manchin and Sinema

to overcome a filibuster.

So they get to have out-sized importance once again
