    And screw the three representatives who didn't vote at all.

    Screw McCain.

    But if you've seen Dennis' act for a long as I have, you-all would have no doubt which
    way he was going to swing on this one. He's an earnest, well-meaning, extreme liberal . . .
    you know what you're going to get, depending on the issue at hand.

    For Cleveland to elect this joker mayor was hysterical. Unfortunately, things weren't so
    funny, after he won the job.

    I was curious about the three that didn't vote.

    From what I can tell, once Roukema decided to retire, she completely checked out (http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/members/r000465/votes/)

    Stump was very ill and died a year later.

    Despite my best Googling efforts, I don't understand why Ortiz didn't vote. My best guess is that since Stump, the chairman of the Armed Services Cmte, wasn't able to vote that Ortiz, the ranking member, didn't vote as a measure of respect.

    Well, Kucinich is a nut ... but he has the consistency of his views, as wrongheaded as they may be.

    ... a defense often used for Bush: at least he doesn't flip-flop.

    I don't think "being too stubborn/macho to admit when you're wrong" is an admirable trait in a political representative, or anybody.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the likelihood of a stopped clock, at some point, being right. Or those stacked heels in your closet, waiting to come back into style.

    When I was in college (1975-78?) he was a popular campus speaking tour guy as a kind of populist reformer.

    This guy's an ass. He most certainly has flip-flopped: on abortion.

    DyePack is right. Actually, to steal a line from Christopher Walken in Biloxi Blues, he's need three promotions to be a fucktard.
  10. Trent (States Rights Forever!) Lott is back in the GOP leadership.
    And Dennis Kucinich is nuts.
    Of course.

    Fens: Two separate topics.

    Kucinich is in fantasyland.

    The GOP, as we've observed, doesn't learn, easy.
