Voinovich Sounds a Most Progressive Squish

by Smitty

Right Wing News highlights some of the decay afoot in conservativism:

Too many conservative senators like Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) are to blame for the GOP’s downfall, one of their retiring Republican colleagues complained Monday.

“We got too many Jim DeMints and Tom Coburns,” Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio) told the Columbus Dispatch. “It’s the southerners.”

This is why I’m fond of saying the two-party system in this country amounts to a sad farce. The only way you can decry the abundance of DeMints and Coburns is if you’re given to thinking of the country as a single state with 50 counties.

Goodbye, Senator Voinovich. May you be replaced by someone less keen on playing along while Buckeyes are being sifted like wheat.

I’m fairly sure DeMint and Coburn felt thoroughly complimented by Voinovich’s petulance.
