  •  How sad ... (9+ / 0-)
    With the exception of Tester, there's really not much there that the party wouldn't be better without. These folks are what keep dragging the party away from doing things that benefit people and then we wonder why our voters don't turnout for off year elections.
    ...to see a comment that we'd be better off losing these 10 Democratic seats in the Senate.

    If so, the Senate would force the pipeline through with enabling legislation, and that would only be the start of our national nightmare.

      has a lunatic tea-bagger crook we may well send instead of Pryor, as they're polling dead-even.

      Here's a snip from Huffington Post yesterday about that nasty little twerp:

      Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) was reportedly cleared of one House ethics complaint Wednesday, only to have another fired at him.

      The first case was sparked by a Huffington Post article about radio interviews with Cotton in which the talk show host's remarks made it appear that the congressman was fundraising from the House grounds for his Senate race against Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.). If true, that would violate ethics rules.

      The new case comes from a retired Arkansas state judge, who said he is concerned that Cotton may have broken ethics rules by failing to disclose pertinent information on his financial disclosure forms.

        It's enough to make me miss Blanche Lincoln.
