There's more than one way to take over Congress, folks, and it's not at the ballot box.
It's called bribery, and this bribe is worth a billion dollars. However, before Democrats get all up in arms about it, they should remember how they worked on Senator Jeffords to get him to cross the aisle, and caucus with the Democrats as an Independent. Either way, and whether Republicans or Democrats do it, it subverts the will of the people, who elected these guys. But does it really matter? We are talking about Congresscritters, who will do whatever it takes to score points. Honestly, I have more respect for prostitutes who, at the end of the day, take a shower and a douche, and all the dirt comes off - More than I can say for politicians of any stripe. They can shower all they want, and their filth remains. As for the douche, if they were to do that, then they would no longer exist.Republicans are making some big promises to try to lure West Virginia Senator-elect Joe Manchin to cross the aisle.
Aside from his pick of committee assignments (likely the Energy and Natural Resources Committee), Manchin might get support for one of his pet projects - a plant to convert coal to diesel fuel that has stalled under Democratic leadership in Washington.
It's one of Manchin's pet projects and could mean big money for the state's coal producers.
