    that Richard "Fucking" Burr would break ranks with his co-conspirators of the GOP Senate Caucus.  But then I considered the optics.  Watt's 12 District butts right up against Burr's home turf in Mecklenburg Co, and if he causes too much trouble for Mel, things could bleed over.  He has to know the only reason he's still taking up space in the Senate is that the NCDP didn't field a strong enough candidate in the midterms in 2010 (Elaine Marshall is a fine SoS, but was overmatched in that race both politically and financially).

    I keep waiting for this fuckstain to do something so monumentally stupid that even his base will abandon him.  Guess I'll have to wait a while longer.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
