Liberal Spear-Carrier Joe "Juke-the-Rubes" Manchin May Be In More Electoral Danger Than Previously Guessed

Is Joe Manchin gonna get got?

Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, one of the most battle-tested politicians in Washington, is starting to look like one of those panicked incumbents as his battle for a second term draws closer. Running in the most Trump-friendly state in the country, he's beginning to behave in ways that suggest heís a lot more vulnerable than the public polls suggest.

Under fire from Vice President Mike Pence for opposing the administrationís tax cut, he's been complaining how much "Washington sucks" in an effort to portray himself as a congressional outsider. Heís now urging his colleagues not to campaign against any sitting senators, a move that is transparently in his (and the Democratic Party's) own interest.

By the way, Joe Manchin campaigned for Mitch McConnell's Democrat challenger a cycle or two ago.

...

Republicans gleefully circulated footage of him unsure of when to stand and applaud President Trumpís State of the Union address. Another popular anti-Manchin meme shows a split photo of the senator showcasing his support for Planned Parenthood at one event, while posing with antiabortion activists at another--both from 2017....

Pence and the GOP are attacking him for voting against the tax cut, using the hashtag campaign #JoeVotedNo. The author John Krashaar notes that Manchin worked with (or "worked with") the GOP on the tax cut plan, and then voted against it -- and Pence says he was "blindsided" by that.

Almost as if this Liberal in Liberal's Clothing is trying to continue Washington DC's favorite game: Trick the Hicks.
