Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

West Virginia Piffle

leave a comment »

So Fox is projecting Joe Manchin as the winner in WV, and he’s just made his victory speech. He claims to be a different kind of democrat and one who will bring a new message to Washington.


This is the guy who supported the healthcare reform before he opposed it. This is the guy who ran away from all of Obama’s policies.

So is he going to caucus with the Republicans? I very much doubt it. Thus, he’s simply going to be an enabler for Harry Reid (or Chuck Schumer). He was personally popular in WV, said all the right things, and proved that making elections local can work. But is he going to be a good thing for WV? Not if he enables a Democratic senate majority.
