The harder I look at this divide in America, the more I despair. I think we're heading toward an irreparable split. I'm sad about what Republican intransigence, what Republican drift toward cult-of-personality politics, is doing to this country. But when you turn against democracy, you turn against America.

I'm usually in favor of compromises in policy and lawmaking. But we can't compromise on whether to protect the voting rights of all Americans, especially when they're being threatened by dog whisper racists. Manchin is giving too much to maintain the peace, just like Neville Chamberlain.
