luckily today, former senator norm coleman of minnesota can rest assured he is not the most ridiculous republican out there. the more ridiculous lot can be found at any of the tax tea party celebrations going on around the country.
but i’d prefer to focus on norm because i want to know how depriving minnesota of a senator and running up the public debt at a time of great financial hardship represents serving the people.
the way these folks all cling to their seats makes it pretty self evident there isn’t a better job to be had, unless of course you join a lobby and get your old cronies to siphon government funds to your new cause.
given the choice today of complaining about u.s. tax policies or poor representation, i will direct my scorn to the far more insidious poor representation.
