    The people have spoken, they have been ignored, at the politicians peril. The politicos are underestimating the anger. Links at site:

    That's unbelievable. The only thing I can think of is she is trying to make a I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine deal. It still doesn't make much sense. It is certainly a slap in the face to Louisiana. Unbelievable.

    This is certainly not good news, but saying the GOP shot itself dead is perhaps overreacting. I could probably tally the percentage of Americans who have heard of the Coburn ammendment on both hands.

    Ah, but those that have, count. Those that haven't are 'wannabees'.

    Congrats to the senators who had balls enough to support Coburn.

    Shame on the GOP.
