    Flake had pretty low odds of winning his next election without supporting Trump. Now personally, I'd prefer that he fight it out and try to change the minds of his voters but elections require time and money. Not running allows him to put his effort toward other goals and lets people who would otherwise donate to his campaign put their money elsewhere. It also gives him an astonishing amount of freedom in what he can say (which I expect him to use) and how he can vote (which unfortunately, I expect him not to use).

    McCain, Corker and Flake working together could hold the Senate hostage and force it to work in a bipartisan fashion simply by committing to vote against everything that doesn't have more than 50 votes without them. McConnell would be left reaching out to Democrats for every piece of legislation and (more importantly in this case) every judicial appointment. The Senate would either work together or stop working. Since, McCain, Corker and Flake don't have to worry about running again, there's not a damn thing that could be done to pressure them effectively. Unfortunately, this isn't going to happen but it'd amuse me to watch.

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    President Moneybags has just passed off another gift to his already too wealthy cronies - the end of net neutrality.

    I've had other more personal things on my mind the last couple of days, but that net neutrality thing is about to become a raging cause of mine. We can't let it go the way of television, and that's what they want. Corporate control, bundles, packages, the illusion of competitive markets, $$$, $$$, and more $$$.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Glad the forum's fixed! The first thing that popped into my mind when I couldn't access it earlier was "Are they starting that net stuff already?"

    I saw Bannon on tv yesterday. He was speaking about how 45 has bolstered the careers of other politicians. He dressed and carried himself like a vagrant - I don't get him at all.

    I wonder why anyone takes him seriously?

    And that scruffy look is sooooo edgy and today. From the looks of guys on TV, nobody shaves more than twice a week anymore. Bannon takes it to the max - he does cool by looking like he only bathes once a year, and goes to bed drunk each night with a leprous prostitute.
