    I can't stomach people being so reactionary they can't just wait for someone to make a mistake before they attack them on it.

    I grew up in Alaska.  Begich is not going to be the kind of democrat that you or many others want him to be.  But we can hope he will be the kind of democrat that sticks around in Alaskan politics.

      And I still live here, and his behavior is typical for many of our worthless politicians (minus Cummings and Simpson).
      So folks, don't acceept that it's ok to be a conservative Democrat in the sticks, here in the big cities of Baltimore and Annapolosis the DLC and Bush-dog Dems reigns supreme.
      The only difference is that we are a blue state.

      My beef is that we just brought in a Senator who obviously has no staff, because no staff would let him volunteer that horrid opinion to the press and staff wouldn't let him make a fool of himself on morning joe.

      I guess I am handringing because of a failure of our Senate caucus this year.

      Am I being reactionary?  What if Palin had came out and said the EXACT SAME THING,  trust me, people here would freak out, the media would freak out, the anchorage newspaper would etc etc.

      Also, I am a strong believer in the "Every Senator is Special" philosophy (well i made it up).  What I am saying is although some Senators have committees and seniority, all of our caucus members count.

      So why would he be making statements on day 10 that have nothing to do with the DNC message.

      I am curious as to what that radio lady I see on Rachel Maddow has to say about this.

        ...without the benefit of your overbearing judgement?

        I am going to wait and see what kind of senator Begich and his freshment collegues are going to be before I freak out.  If that's okay with you.

        •  Thats an excellent question! (0+ / 0-)

          Except substitute judgment with wisdom :D

          I will wait with you on this, but if the current Senate of the last 6 years is any precursor then I will likely keep my hopes very modest.
