On a serious note, I saw some writing about McConnell arranging for his replacement to be a Republican (should he leave office prematurely) even though the Guv is a Democrat.

I hope he cannot pull that off.

They really don’t like doing the long, hard work of being in the minority do they?

I don’t remember Democrats retiring like little bitches when they’re in the minority.

both state deals (excluding the Governor) have Republican majorities.

This is not a party behaving like they think they have any chance of taking back the Senate anytime soon. Isn’t this like the fifth or sixth retirement?

You beat me to it. The Rats are leaving the sinking Republican ship. It is important that the Democrats box the Republicans into the far right corner they have chosen to occupy. It is not the time for the Democratic Left, of which I am in agreement on much most of the time on policy proposals must not see this as an opportunity to pass major legislation.

When we have a broader majority we can move policy.
