Report: Senate Democrats 'Vent' at Chuck Schumer Over Election Failures

Just weeks ago, they were measuring the drapes for their newfound majority, with more than a few spouting off about radical institution-crushing schemes like packing the Supreme Court. Their former leader, Harry Reid (perhaps the man most responsible for the deterioration of the Senate, not to mention the Trump-McConnell judicial confirmation pipeline, which continues apace), was dispensing advice:

Former Senate leader Harry Reid says if Democrats win the presidency and the Senate, Joe Biden should take “no more than three weeks” to test bipartisanship before ending the filibuster so Democrats can overcome what they call Republican obstruction and pass bills. The retired Nevada Democrat told The Associated Press in an interview that he understands Biden wants to work with Republicans, as the former vice president and Delaware senator has in the past. But Reid said there is just too much that needs to be done in the country for to wait around trying to reach agreements under the decades old-Senate practice of requiring 60 votes to advance legislation.

He was also making bold predictions, which many Democrats seem to have taken to heart:

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Election Day that Democrats are “in good shape” in Nevada and predicted Senate victories in states including Iowa, Alaska and Montana. Reid, appearing on “MSNBC Live” Tuesday afternoon, predicted that Democrats would retake the Senate majority this year. “I think we’re going to win in Colorado, we’re going to win in Montana, we’re going to win in Maine, we’re going to win in North Carolina. We have two shots in Georgia. We’re going to win in Arizona, we’re going to win in Iowa and we’re going to win in Alaska,” he said.

That's an impressive list of wrongness, and Senate Democrats aren't happy about it, reportedly "venting" to and about Chuck Schumer, Reid's successor:

Yet we're supposed to believe that while voters were rejecting Democrat candidates all across the country, Joe Biden and his "Most Liberal member of the Senate" running mate handily beat Donald Trump?!   Suuuure they did!

Mod note:  I know this my surprise some people, but we've had a rule for 15+ years that we don't talk about violence towards anyone, that includes elected officials.

Too bad they don't follow the same rules.
