Today, January 12, Mitch McConnell read a response to Biden’s call for an end to the filibuster. Once again, Senator McConnell demonstrated his ability to forget, lie, and stand on a foundation of pure hypocrisy. He extolled the filibuster as a necessary part of how the Senate can prevent racialism. Relaxing it for just one vote would destroy minority rights. — Except when he needs to get people on the Supreme Court in a hurry. But, he forgot that.

Biden pointed out that 13 current Republican Senators voted to renew the voting rights act when it last came up. But later, Roberts poked his head up out of his robes, looked around, and he saw that racial discrimination in voting laws was no longer necessary. Clarence Thomas agreed.

Now, here we are, heading quickly into one-party, minority rule. We have already seen what they do when they lose.
