    Manchin is the only state-wide elected official from WV that's a Democrat and he's held power and his post despite the redness of his state. So annoying as it is for Dems to rely so much on him (I...

    There's a "before Beatles" and "after Beatles". That matteers more than winning the replay.

    It's about grudges and bitter feelings and grievances and posturing. That's all.

    The Bernie memes are innocent and light and fun, and some people want to make a to-do about it.
