    ...it shouldn't be newsworthy that an elected Republican says such obvious things. The fact that it IS news is (for me) the story here. That doesn't detract from Rigell -- it's a sharp comment on most of the rest of his party.

    That said, I acknowledge his courage in standing up (in this narrowly crafted way) to a thug in his own party. But to what extent will he VOTE against the thugs who control his party? That's where courage matters for an elected politician.
