The best Christmas gift he could give Moscow Mitch would be to change sides before 2022. And the crazy part is I can totally see him doing so too.
Yeah, or, or, Kamala Harris would be motivated to step in and say "Uh, no, I'm in charge of the Senate, and all the powers you've been claiming to have all these years are stuff you pulled out of your ass and all the other Democrats were too much of a coward to call you on. Now sit down and shut up."Things would be so much more worse right now if Manchin wasn't a Democrat.

Partly because he wants to slow down the transition to renewable energy, given how invested he is in west virginia coal.
