6.6/10. I have to admit, I did enjoy Congressman Furlong and his Smithers-like underling. And the prospect of tears raising and lowering the approval ratings to where Furlong vacillates between wanting and disdaining Selina's endorsement is an amusing one. And the interaction with the big donor championing the "grabbers" is some fun commentary.

But this was a pretty rudderless half hour, without enough pace or laugh to really keep things going. Dan fretting over whether he'll be outed for massaging the McCauley amendment has been fairly narratively inert for a while, and the episode goes over a lot of the same beats over and over again. There's some fun stuff, but it's a pretty insubstantial episode that never really hits the mark.
