shit happens when we sold the party.

Bayh was suspect when he was Guv'ner whilst I existed in Hoosier-Land.

Ha Ha, that's funny, you guys think there are honest politicians.

As one of Bayh's "constituents", I can assure you that should he oppose the reform bill, he'll have lost my vote. He's NOT voting with his constituency as far as I'm concerned.

To once again, for the thousandth time, quote the late, great, much-missed Molly Ivins: "You got to dance with them what brung ya." Just follow the money, folks, and it's clear with whom congressional loyalties lie. Real reform cannot take place in our political system until we have total public financing of all campaigns, and that will take a Constitutional Amendment to get around the crooks and liars who think money is free speech.

Definition: Constituent - noun - the corporation that gives me the most money.

WellPoint bought out my husband' employer in NYC. I'm now really glad he vamoosed from the company when he did.
