  •  She's nice to talk to - but (12+ / 0-)

    she's never represented anybody but the special interests, of whom she happens to be one.  As long as the Rs controlled Congress she could make meaningless progressive votes as a sop to us peons.  Once the Dems got back in power she started showing her true color (red) - by voting against everything she'd voted for when the Rs were in control.  I remember a discussion I once had with her on the estate tax.  Fact mattered nothing to her.  No matter what I showed her or who I quoted she just kept repeating that the "death tax" (RW meme) hurt small businesses and small farmers.  (FYI - less that 1/10th of 1% of Arkansans have estates large enough to pay ANY estate tax, but that less than 1/10th of 1% includes her.)  She hasn't changed a bit.  She's just had her camouflage removed.
