Manchin is a tool. Obviously he's being paid off. We even know how. That said, perhaps we can put together a GoFundMe to get him even more money than his backers are giving him, to do the right thing. If he can be bought, in other words, why don't we just buy him??#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter?

So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
