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.
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?
