  •  Now, I'll preface this with a snark label but (7+ / 0-)

    In one sense I can see Dodd's impatience with these politicians.

     If I cancel my HBO and the HBO programming on my DVR disappears that's just following the rules as the game is now played.

    If you intend for your vote to be bought and sold like a commodity, you should have the common decency to just stay bought. Duke Cunningham was my Representative before he got hauled off to prison but he was only incrementally worse than Brian Bilbray who replaced him. Bilbray takes his bribes like a good little Congresscritter in the form of donations to his re-election campaign or to his PAC or as a "fact finding mission" to some exotic locale.  There is undoubtedly a more than casual  correlation between his voting pattern and his donor roles.

    Paging Captain Renault on line one - "I am shocked!"
