So this one is about why Republicans on the Hill are acting the way they are acting right now.
I worked on the Hill for years. Specifically, for years I worked on the Hill as a Democrat in a government ruled entirely by Republicans. For years.

So these scandals (real and totally trumped up alike), and a general sense of foreboding at the likely results from uber-gerrymandering of the House for the foreseeable future have left me in my political sad place.
I need a pick-me-up. You probably do, too.
Here are some things to cheer us up...

limit the purchases by the U.S. Government of ammunition based on a whacked-out conspiracy theory that the government is buying up all the ammo. The NRA said this was not true.
I have now had it with the crazed "government is coming to get us" thing from people who claim to be patriots.
It's dangerous to gin up people who are already prone to believe the worst of the government and whose common denominator is a love for weapons. It's bizarre for a Senator in a representative democracy to demonize the government.
Hey, Conspiracy Brother Senator ("climate change is a hoax!" "they're coming to get your ammo!"), you want a conspiracy theory?

Color me angry. The Senate is about to fail to pass even the compromise version of legislation to improve background checks for gun purchases.
Sen. Joe Manchin tells me "we will not get the votes today" expanded background checks to fail in Senate. Try again he says.

So we've heard from conservatives now. And as much fun as that was, I feel like it's important to underline something.
