    Longtime Rep. Jane Harman to Quit Congress

    Longtime Rep. Jane Harman to Quit Congress - FoxNews.com

    Jane Harman of California is quitting Congress before her term expires.

    Where, I wonder, are all the liberal weenies that whined like little babies about Palin quitting as governor of Alaska before her term expired? They should be furious now too.

    They did the same thing, both went into private life, other positions, etc.

    Could the utter lack of outrage here be because she has a D after her name, not an R?

    i was just reading about this...to answer you, her situation is slighty different, she has already served a previous tour as a rep, this time has served since what? 2001? that, and she isnt planning on running for another office, and i believe she is looking at being 'redistricted' out of a job....also, she doenst get along with pelosi.

    wait for it...wait for it...wait for it...

    "...but...but...but...that's different!"

    Does the, "D", stand for, "different"?

    Re: Longtime Rep. Jane Harman to Quit Congress

    More bogus conservative carping at the world? What a surprise!

    The really interesting aspect for me about Jane Harman's departure will be the form of the election to fill her vacated seat.

    Excerpted from “Jane Harman to resign from Congress” By Chris Cillizza, “The Fix” (blog), The Washington Post, Posted at 10:52 AM ET, 02/ 7/2011, Updated 3:10 p.m.
    The election will be the first major test of the state's new "jungle primary" law where all candidates -- regardless of party -- will run against one another. … The two top vote-getters advance to a special general election.

    Harman is quitting to join a highly respected institution of scholars responsible for helping draft America's foreign and domestic policies.

    Palin quit so she could be on TLC.

    One will still be serving the American people.

    The other is making a buck off them.

    Harmen has served nine terms in congress. That's nearly 20 years. You're honestly trying to say that's no different than a governor quitting in the middle of her first term?? The comparison is totally lame.

    And I assume you have proof that Ms. harman is not accepting a salary or other compensation from her new position?

    The utter lack of outrage is probably due to the fact that no one cares about some random congresswoman who 99% of Americans had never heard of prior to today.
