re: #106 Belafon

It would be awesome if we could get control of the Senate. Imagine what the 2021 Senate will look like if Democrats win it now.

Well: that’s a double-edged “awesome” there.
On one hand, seeing Mitch McConnell reduced to having to be on the receiving end of the parliamentary gamesmanship he’s used (contrary to longstanding Senate custom) to marginalize the Democrats (with only a 1-2 seat Majority) will be a refreshing dose of schadenfreude, to be sure.
However, OTOH, we will doubtless then be subject to at least two years of Yertle (and other assorted Republicans) occupying TV time and Op-Ed column-inches bitching and moaning about the demise of “comity” and “bipartisanship” - and grumping about Dem “obstructionism”. Which complaints our “mainstream” media will no doubt be only too eager to air - incessantly.
