    You write a lot of  stuff about our congress critters that is informative but usually non-controversial,apparently today you kicked the hornets nest.While I'd normally characterize myself as one of the flamers,it really amazes me how little some people really know about  political reality and what is actually possible.These well meaning folk who think all you have to do is speak truth to power and wave a magic wand and all is going to be well need to wake the fuck up.Just ask Fiengold and Kucinich and Grayson (glad he's back!) how that works in the real world.People who say they'll vote for Ken Buck because Mark Udall fails their purity test are beneath contempt to me, but realistically not much worse than Colorado voters who condemn him for voting for the despicable cat food commission proposal, even though every  congressional democrat voted the same way - multiple times - even in safe districts represented by psuedo liberals Polis and DeGuette.I think I agree on an emotional level with some of these commenters but politics is 'like revenge',a dish served cold.
