So one of the few legislators I have a positive opinion of is leaving the Senate. Senator Evan Bayh is retiring after only 12 years. A centrist Democrat who has had his fill of the partisan stupidity that rules in Congress these days. While I can sympathize with his reason, I can only feel sad because one more reasonable voice is leaving.
Funny, but I used to consider myself a centrist Republican. Then when Ronnie ruined the Republican Party, I became a centrist Democrat. The spineless wimps from the Left proved they did not, could not, would not stand up and govern. So now I am just a centrist Independent who will dance on both Party's graves if the chance ever comes up.
I have given up thinking that the leaders of either the Democrats or the Republicans are interested in actually leading this country. They have both decided that their own political interests are more important than mine or the other citizens of this country. Both of them can go to Hell for all I care.
