Maybe there’s some brilliant strategy I don’t get here, but this attempt by Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders to publicly pressure Joe Manchin through an op-ed in a West Virginia paper seems at best pointless, and at worst reckless and likely to backfire. wvgazettemail.com/opinion/op…

Kristol is the one minimizing what Sanders is doing. He thinks he is able to get us to his side. He is still a Republican through and through. They hate when the American people win.

I would like to boycott everything made in WV. How can it be that a very small state can have such severe consequences on the ability of the rest of humanity to be able to breathe fresh air, have food and not die of extreme heat.

How can it be that Vermont, which is ranked 50th in US population have such an outsized influence on American policy.
