Hey. I'm originally from Wisconsin. They have a "turd" that is as bad as Durbin. (Russ Feingold) However, in respect to Feingold, he tells you what he is about and the people from Wisconsin still vote him back in. I should clarify that; Madison and Milwaukee vote him back in. Ed
It would appear that most, not all, senators are elected by the big city vote in their state. Is it any wonder that these jerks keep getting elected when half the vorters in any city are probably government employees or on the dole.
We get what the "people" want.
It's no wonder Durbin looks like Schumer. Schumer, Durbin, and another senator whose name I can't remember were sharing a house together in the Washington area. Don't know if they still do. There was an article in The Peoria Journal Star a while back about that. Think... birds of a feather flock together.
