Above: OMD If You Leave And leave I must. Thank you for letting me be part of your week. I'd like to thank the 28+ bloggers who've documented our week. The Lefty Blog-O-Sphere is in rare form!

Egberto Willies notes that Bernie lost his cool with Joe Manchin this week. (Bernie and the Threats? Didn't Elton sing that?)

Mike The Mad Biologist cuts to the chase: Just Bribe Manchin Already.

Max's Dad has a throw-down with the debt ceiling showdown!

Bonus Track: In Saner Thoughts reminds us of the two forgotten versus of This Land Is Your Land; it's not what they taught us in school!

Thanks again and I hope to return soon!
