View Diary: Democrat Jim Cooper's vote against Sandy relief shows, once again, why he needs to be primaried (191 comments)

  •  Cooper's gotten worse since 1994... (6+ / 0-)

    ...when he ran for the Senate and got clobbered by Fred Thompson. (Apparently the Clintons were not so secretly gleeful at his defeat.) Ever since he got back into the House a decade ago he's been even more skittish and eager to show he's no liberal or anything.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't fly anymore. He represents a Democratic district and voting like a Blue Dog doesn't cut it anymore. I have no problem with Democrats representing red districts like Jim Matheson voting like this (though he voted for the Sandy relief), but anyone who represents a district like Cooper's has no excuse.
