    Nah, I'm just bowing out because talking to you is like talking to a brick wall. You'll just make up whatever you want to be contrary.

    I am but a humble servant of the data, which can seem like a brick wall to those unfamiliar with it.

    In this case, the 200+ year history of the behavior of Senators.

    So should we ignore your statements where you tell us who can and cannot win? Hey! Good idea!

    Yeah, it turns out it was the timing. I knew he'd messed with it somehow, I just completely 100% screwed up the how

    Historically he is actually correct. For most of our history the House has operated on something more similar to a Parliamentary model, with the powerful speaker enforcing party discipline by controlling committee memberships. Senators have traditionally felt a freer hand, and each individual Senator has wielded more power than members of the other chamber.
