I can’t say I’m sorry Stevens lost

because I’m not.

At the end of a long public career, Ted Stevens was nothing more than a corrupt, favor trading, pork producing Senator.

Yes, that’s what a lot of our “public servants” are these days.

And, yes, I know most of us ordinary citizens really like it when our Senators bring home the bacon.

Still, good riddance to Ted Stevens.

Allahpundit’s take - - -

DeMint was preparing a resolution to boot him from the Senate on Thursday just in case he squeaked through, but all for naught as it turns out. No Senate seat for the ‘Cuda, needless to say, and another black eye for the GOP that could have been avoided if they’d pushed this tool into retirement back when they should have.

That makes 58 Senate seats by my count, with Coleman/Franken and Chambliss/Martin still to come. The two most powerful Republicans in the Senate now? Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, the last GOPers in New England.


In the new Senate Snowe and Collins will often be in the catbird seat, but I wouldn’t go as far as calling them the Senate’s most powerful Republicans.

Otherwise, I agree with Allahpundit.

What about you?

John: Truth be told, Snowe and Collins aren't even real Republicans! We've got Blue Dog Democrats right here in NC who come closer to the ideals of the GOP than either of those two RINOs.

Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins belong to a select NE RINO club. Two other charter members are Jumping Jim Jeffords, and Moonbat Lincoln Chaffee.

People in that part of the country say a real conservative could not win an election, and half a GOP is better than none, but others tell me RINOs are ruining the GOP. Until the GOP returns to its conservative roots, I am not interested in them.
