This is more of the "All Democrats suck and Joe Manchin is the proof" baloney that passes for "analysis" here on Medium. Do I wish all Democratic Senators were Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren? Of course I do. But they don't all run in Vermont and Massachussetts, do they? They run in deep red WV and Montana, really red Ohio and Arizona, and purple Pennsylvania. Telling them all they need to run campaigns that Bernie and AOC can be proud of just ain't gonna do it. You're not going to be taken seriously.

We just got the first black woman on the SCOTUS because we have 50 Democrats in the Senate. Period. We aren't seeing bills for yet more huge tax breaks for Elon and Jeff because we have 50 Democrats in the Senate. Period. We aren't seeing Congress waste its time on serial, fake"Benghazi!" style investigations because we have a few more House seats and 50 in the Senate. Period.

Rather than your petulant "Don't vote for moderate Democrats" tantrums, how about we hear some "Replace fascist GOP with at least a moderate Democrat."? Or how about this analysis: If every present fascist GOP Senator were replaced by Connor Lamb, do we have Build Back Better today?

Would we have just passed protection for womens' health across the nation. You know the answer is yes to both. Would we be hearing threats of substantially cutting or eliminating SS and Medicare? You know the answer to that as well.

Stop doing the fascists work for them.
