    I'd never donate to him, but compared to a Utah Republican, yeah, we're probably better off with Matheson in Congress.

    •  I was gonna say "at least he..." (3+ / 0-)

      "...voted for Pelosi for Speaker." That's a touchstone for me, especially since a couple of turncoat State Senators here have converted a 26-23 D majority to a 24-25 "bipartisan" leadership cabal (with one of the turncoats now installed as the "majority" leader).

      Just to be sure, I looked at the House roll call votes. The second recorded vote in the 1st session of each Congress is for Speaker.

      The last time Jim Matheson voted for Nancy Pelosi was 2009, in the 111th Congress. His choice in the 112th was Heath Shuler, and in the 113th (this January) Matheson voted for John Dingell as Speaker.

      The hell with him.
