    lose face if it doesn't. Why he hasn't already realized he's become a punch line to the Republican caucus (to their delight) and to most of us (to our anguish is the real question.

    His only hope to regain stature is to come back rip-roaring mad and pound his fellow Republican senators to a pulp by pushing through a significantly more progressive position over their objections.

    I'm not taking that bet though.

    And why should he? He keeps his chair, he keeps his seat, and the money pours in from his lobbyist friends. What's he losing? Progressive cred? Like he cares.
