    twisted ideas to their constituents - the Senate is the sacred temple of the "Back Room Deal" and for good reason.

    Unlike congressional teapot reps who's rhetoric plays well to their gerrymandered districts - statewide office are more perilous for extreme views.

    Yes, they may "lie", but more likely would become a comedy of "off topic" bloviating and preaching. These guys are not "entertainers" or on air personalities - just a bunch of old men for the most part who lack the courage and energy of their convictions.

    They need to start eating their Wheaties and hitting the treadmills if they really want to "fight" for something - my guess is very few of them will even try.

    If not us ... who? If not here ... where? If not now ... when?
