    Will the fruitcake wing of the Tea Party get one of their fellow fruitcakes nominated as GOP candidate, and give another election to the Democrats?

    Nelson is probably tired of getting boo'ed when he and his wife go out dining in Nebraska. DemocRAT....get a rope.

    Nelson is the media's idea of a moderate. That means he hesitated a nanosecond before voting for the mislabeled stimulus bill, aka the intergenerational theft act for those who understand it's ramifications. It also means he extorted a significant bribe from Harry Reid and Obummer before voting for the government take over of health care. Google 'cornhusker kickback' for the details. That bribe like every other political bribe to be paid for by the rest of us.

    Here's what every single moderate dem and moderate republican (that's media speak for RINO) has in common: when it got down to the nut cuttin', those b@stards always voted for whatever socialist legislation Obummer was promoting. "Moderate" anything translates to "reliable liberal vote".

    Screw Nelson and good riddance.

    edited addition: I hope Collins and Snowe of Maine are next to get their walking papers.

    Mrs. Keet,


    Nothing shows the hypocrisy of the Left better than the example of Nelson. When it's the Tea Party they're talking about, it's always, "Why won't they compromise?"


    But - when one of their OWN hesitates for a nanosecond, taking time to extract a little pork before ultimately voting for Obama's signature legislation - they excoriate him, and say, "Good Riddance to a DINO moderate."


    So, I guess we see what compromise means to the wacko left - it only applies to the other side.

    Nelson is nothing but a bought and paid for Obama whore. His quitting puts the democratic senate majority in major peril.

    What a shame......democrats may have to ride in the back of the bus for a change.
