Concerning the blog linked to this TOPIX...

First the writer makes a valid point about the Democratic Party's ultimate political strategy:

"I blame lifer Democrat politicians who keep the status quo by making the populous seemingly dependent upon them for relief."

Then in the very next paragraph, the writer has the audacity to endorse Manchin:

"Joe Manchin, current governor, is a good man and a lawyer from Fairmont. He can be good for the state as a Senator, but voters must demand a move away from the dole."
