    It's Massachussetts, they'll replace him with another lefty.

    Good luck, Barney. We will certainly miss him as a very smart man, an effective legislator, and one of the few Democrats in Washington was not afraid to pull his punches when calling the conservatives on their bullsh*t.

    Frank is hardly broken up about it. He got to be a Congressman for a very long time, and his successor won't be Conservative, either.

    MA is an educated (i. e. democratic) state so the typical "bomb the Arabs, bash the gays, regulate the womb, run up military deficits" right wing nut job won't win his seat.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    You think Barney will read this?

    Depends on what kind of "lefty." Cafe liberalism* is on its way out in MA. MA is now mostly independents who prefer classical (real) liberals.

    * - a political bent involving taking stances on popular social issues (i. e. abortion, domestic partnerships) that are the opposite of those taken by most Conservative voters, with the intent of appealing to non-Conservatives, while simultaneously supporting the exact same pro-establishment military/foreign policies and taxpayer-funded subsidies as their GOP counterparts. Members of this "movement" are obama, clintons, etc.

    Ah, yes, the party of education. LOL

    I love how you guys gather at the coffee house every day to tell each other how smart you are, then go back to work for your Republican bosses.

    Barney only engaged in consensual* sex. Butt-raping, etc. was primarily the domain of GOPers like mark foley.

    * - rush limbaugh hasn't yet taught his GOP flock this term, so they don't know what it means.
