Ride 'Em Outta Town on a Rail!

Stevens and Byrd. Two old-time blowhard porkers who long ago deserved to be sent packing to the Big Fat Piggy Playground for retired pain in the arse senators. What a pair. Terribly unsurprising that the biggest porker from each party would place the secret hold.

Stevens is up for re-election in '08, and lordy, lordy do I hope the people of Alaska realize what a turd this hump really is and cast him out. Byrd is up for re-election this year, so West Virginia's voters have one final chance to boot the old racist porker out.

The two of them embody virtually everything that is wrong and disheartening about American politics these days. They are entrenched, they are arrogant, they are disingenuous if not downright dishonest, they are partison, and they believe that they are more important than the people who have elected them.

They must go. If we are ever to have anything remotely resembling true representative government, people like Byrd and Stevens simply cannot be allowed to retain positions of power. They simply must go.


I lived in W.Va. in the 1980s, and Byrd was a senator THEN and he was a BAD senator THEN. I don't understand how these bad politicians continue to get reelected.

Oh, and Hail to the Redskins!
