Got swallowed up by the Trump Telenovela’s most recent turns, but this is really, really bad. I have no problem assuming that no other Democrats want Manchin to be running the committee that would address climate change, but while a few people (including Bernie!) share particular blame for this, the party at large really has a problem. The dreams of a lifetime baronial perch atop a big committee are quite obviously more important to Dem Senators than keeping awful people away from those perches. It keeps happening: crooked Bob Menendez at Foreign Relations, bank-owned Tim Johnson a few years back at Banking, etc. Probably something the senators running for president ought to be asked about.

    The democratic leadership doesn’t really care about global warming either do they.

    always remember, we basically only have one party in this country to which our politicians belong: The Corporatist Party; the rest are just rounding errors.
