Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
They'd rather have a scum bucket Democrat in the Senate than a Republican wild-card who might rather obey the Constitution than play golf with the Democrats.
And that, my friend, is EXACTLY why the Tea Party is so influential this year. The Americans are tired of the liberals and socialists calling themselves moderates while they rape the Republic.
The only thing moderates can be counted on is to lose their alleged "principles" when principles count, and they vote with the Democrats.
