I don't know much about him, I'm probably not a fan of his politics, but i am glad that he is living his principles by imposing his own term limit on himself.

I wish more politicians would do the same.

He's my local congressman.  I'm not a fan, but we can, and probably will, do worse.  He isn't a Tea Party nitwit, but, based on the letters I see in the local paper, there are plenty of Tea Party voters in my area.

The loons are going to come out of the woodwork before November.

he probably figured out he could have more of an effect with an AM talk show than he did in office.

heap: he probably figured out he could have more of an effect with an AM talk show than he did in office.


So from publicly employed shill for the good ole military-industrial complex to a privately employed shill for the same group.  Fascinating.

Michigan representative who was retiring to start an AM radio show, then was most emphatically NOT retiring to start an AM radio show, is now retiring to start an AM radio show.

Everyone got that?

I thought the confusion was over whether or not Rep. Rogers was stepping down as chairman of the House intelligence committee prior to the end of his term. At least, that seems to be what the earlier article on Rogers was about.

Well I'm certainly confused.

Has he been going after the CIA?

I'm waiting for the Polaroids of Dianne Feinstein that get released a week before the election.

As long as it isn't another R filling his place, it looks like the House Intelligence is on the rise.

Dr Tom Coburn here in Oklahoma is doing the same thing which sounds like a good idea until you find out what's about to replace him.  Shudder...

I was just thinking that the country needs another conservative radio talk show host.

Didn't he just deny that he was leaving?

No, he's a defender of the CIA and NSA programs, but still thinks Obama is an un-American tyrant.

I'm honestly not sure how that works.

Cletus C.: I was just thinking that the country needs another conservative radio talk show host.


My thoughts as well he actually looks like a younger Fatfark Limbaugh. I wonder if Cumulus has had enough with pedobear's fat mouth and are replacing with an all new tubby drugged-out chickenhawk.

Great, another conservative talk radio host.

I wonder what it's like for GOP voters to slowly figure out that pretty much all of their most prominent leaders are just trolling everyone for a book/radio/Fox News job.

sugardave: As long as it isn't another R filling his place, it looks like the House Intelligence is on the rise.


It will be another (R), because gerrymandering. The Republitards will be in charge of the House until their "base" has shrunk enough that Democrats that are actually centrist enough to make enough of an impact with even semi-intelligent voters to win actually start taking seats from the wingnut brigades.

As if there weren't enough of them (and we reached *that* limit back when Bill "Blowjobs aren't sex" Clinton was in the White House).

Man, what are the signs? I have all 25 letters in my local newspaper on a given day...

He was against retiring before he was for retiring. Got it?

Perfect time to be one considering the declining ratings for the format.

Does that make Michele Bachmann the new head of the intelligence committee?

NewportBarGuy: Does that make Michele Bachmann the new head of the intelligence committee?


Given the (current) state of the GOP? No. She'll be lucky to get a decent committee assignment (the mainstream GOP is turning their backs on the SUPER-DERP wing of the party, since they want to, you know, have at least a slight chance at replacing the blah man in the White House in 2016).

i guess this is the part where I point out that this "founders' idea" was based on a bunch of wealthy white landowners who had enough slaves to hold down the home fort while they went off and played at "citizen legislator" and it could be more accurately described as a "CEO legislature" if you really think about it.

Can't wait for THAT bubble to burst.

Even Fox only has so many timeslots for angry white guys and marginally attractive idiot women that old, Conservative men treat like they're super-intelligent 10s.
