David Waldman and Greg Dworkin use today’s KITM  to help us think through what’s happening in Congress this week. If any of us do figure it out, there’s plenty of people in DC who’d like to know, too. Well, we kind of do know what is happening there, but but it is tough to see who would want any of this to happen... 

Mitch McConnell wants everything to suck, like he always has. Joe Biden does get what progressives want to build back better, but keeps getting hung up on what Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema want to build. Manchin wants whatever is best for him, which often works out well for his constituents. Sinema hasn’t got a clue, which will become clear even to her, once the infrastructure package passes, or once she’s primaried the hell out.  Swing districts need to show results more quickly than infrastructure can provide however, to hold onto their jobs. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t have the time for this. If only she were allowed to use an actual whip

Democrats are too busy to tackle fascism at the moment. Maybe later? The media might post something if it’s a slow day, once they first GPS a few pro-fascist diners to swing by. We’re lucky that most of our fascists have been morons so far.

Donald Trump didn’t want anyone making butt-stuff jokes about his colonoscopy, therefore it was kept secret, although Trump did demand to stay awake during the procedure so that he wouldn’t miss a single sensation. Donald also figured that once he was asleep, the nurses would joke about his small, toadstool shaped penis. So… just wait until you hear what Omarosa has to say!
