I'll admit to being pretty ambivalent on this fellow, until he staged a special interest-funded walkout. Good for the Dems to try to bring some sanity back into the fold.

The walkout was the last straw for me. I was amazed how many of the Dems followed him to that motel, and what a show (read ass) he made of himself.
But beyond that, he had a multitude of problems.
Yes, it was time for housecleaning. Lawson sounds OK.

I'm 50-50 on the walkout. If I'd been a member of the caucus, I'd never have left the chamber. But:

The roar you heard was the right-win zealots over-reaching. On many issues.

Sometimes, when you're in the middle of that kind of storm, you can't see the exit signs.

Still, it was long past time for him to go. He's been in the House 42 years. If his South Bend constituents want him, they can send him back for 43 and 44. It doesn't mean the rest of us have to have his nonsense visited upon us.

When it's all said and done, he was far beyond a rough-tumble old-school politico.

He was just mean.
