Should have had Cisneros.

Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar, the lone anti-abortion Democrat in the House, said Friday his position has not changed.

"We'll let the states make this decision now," he said.

Asked by NBC News about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's reaction to the Supreme Court's decision, which she said was "cruel," Cuellar said, "Everybody has their opinion, including the speaker."

Cuellar said that while he was in the minority in his caucus, he is not in his district.


I'm sure he's pretty chuffed at the support he got. How does that support look now?

You gotta' be kidding me: Joe Manchin to draft climate legislation

WASHINGTON ó Joe Manchin, the powerful West Virginia Democrat who chairs the Senate energy panel and earned half a million dollars last year from coal production, is preparing to remake President Bidenís climate legislation in a way that tosses a lifeline to the fossil fuel industry ó despite urgent calls from scientists that countries need to quickly pivot away from coal, gas and oil to avoid a climate catastrophe.


But Mr. Manchin is also closely associated with the fossil fuel industry. His beloved West Virginia is second in coal and seventh in natural gas production among the 50 states. In the current election cycle, Mr. Manchin has received more campaign donations from the oil, coal and gas industries than any other senator, according to data compiled by OpenSecrets, a research organization that tracks political spending.

He profits personally from polluting industries: He owns stock valued at between $1 million and $5 million in Enersystems Inc., a coal brokerage firm which he founded in 1988. He gave control of the firm to his son, Joseph, after he was elected West Virginia secretary of state in 2000. Last year, Mr. Manchin made $491,949 in dividends from his Enersystems stock, according to his Senate financial disclosure report.

Impeached and removed. Immediately.

What is a feasible way to move away from plurality voting?

Itís toxic and needs to make way for ranked choice or something better.


You heard the one about who's qualified to serve in a Democratic administration?

No Republicans.

It's a knee-slapper.
