WATCH: Joe Manchin, the Last Semi-Respectable Democratic Senator, Calls It Quits

Gun-loving moderate routinely aggravated hippie freaks by refusing to endorse radical climate policies

November 15, 2023

Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) announced last week that he won't run for reelection in 2024, all but assuring that a Republican will take his place. He is said to be considering an independent run for president.

Despite his many flaws, Manchin might go down in history as the last semi-respectable Democrat to ever serve in the United States Senate. For example, he routinely aggravated members of his own party by refusing to endorse their far-left extremist policies on issues such as abortion, gun control, and climate change.

When a bunch of environmentalist freaks tried to block the senator's Maserati SUV from exiting a parking garage in 2021, Manchin swatted them away like hippie scum.

Happy trails, sir.
