DEAR me, now Senatorial Gangster of Six Saxby Chambliss is leaving Congress because we just can't be bipartisan, like the old days.
The good news is that, so long as Tom Coburn's staying, the average ACU rating for Bipartisan Republicans will remain above 97%.
The bad news is that, with so many disgruntled bipartisans retiring, we'll no longer be able to give each one a piece of the True Cross as a parting gift.
"How To Fill An Empty Suit"
- Saxby Chambliss autobiography
I remember that Chambliss commercial that insinuated - no, wait; blatantly accused - triple-amputee war-hero Max Cleland of being in league with Osama Bin Laden. Very bipartisan.
And the conservatives who responded to the backlash over that ad by saying "Yeah? Well, let's go over the record and see how Cleland REALLY lost three limbs in Vietnam" were models of comity. It's so sad we're losing them, because we really need people like that in our politics.
A deal's a deal, Saxby. You still don't get your soul back.
