Second-guessing Biden on the vote today

Sorry if this has already been posted.

It occurred to me that, in a pretzel-brained sort of way (this is about politics, after all), it might be a good thing if the Repugs vote it down. From what I've seen of Biden, he took the gloves off on Jan 21.

So I wonder if he's already planned on doing something along the lines of getting a special prosecutor to do the investigation. It would be fantastic optics for him -- "Hey, I tried working with you guys, but it didn't work and we're going to get to the bottom of this one way or another." It would by-pass all the namby-pamby BS of giving the Repugs what they wanted, and it might even implicate some of them.

And, to get even more Machiavellian, I have to wonder if Pelosi gave in on some of their demands figuring this would happen.

[Edit: deleted "appoint a special prosecutor."]

So it seems that last year the former guy wanted to ban grated cheese.

He wanted to make America grate again.
