    that a conservative member of Congress would want to be the head of and the voice of an organization that has its origins in the rural electrification program that was one of the true success stories of the New Deal. You know, that "government initiative" where tax money was used to transform the lives of millions of rural Americans, including many of my relatives.

    Guess that ideology can only go so far.

    As I sail against the tide, for what I believe is right.
