    pretty pleased about that...

    until now.

    I don't think she can EVER regain my support. Of course I'd never vote for a Thug against her, but I would work hard for a serious primary challenger from Jan's left.

    Her husband has had legal issues; who knows what secret hints were whispered in her ear? I don't give a fuck however what pressure was applied to her.

    When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...

      -- deserves a second chance, PhilJD.

      She's a pretty solid progressive.  I loved what she did during the Bush years.  Maybe her arm was twisted, but I think we can agree that Amash/Conyers was simply the opening volley in rolling back the security state.  She will have MANY more opportunities in the coming months to redeem herself on this issue.

      I don't think it will take a whole lot of persuasion to get her on board.

      all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
