I understand the fact that senators and representatives cannot be single-issue flag wavers all the time, and that even if they don't help us on a particular bill or issue, we have to look at the broad view -- are we better off overall with this person? and if yes, avoid scalding them too badly over any one issue.

However, if this is true, and I have no reason at all to think Mr. Cotton is making it up:

Charles L. Cotton wrote: ...the last minute sellout by a particular person on Calendars Committee... Chas.

...that person's head needs to be on a stick for both Republicans and Democrats to see. It's one thing to come out and say "I can't do this one" up front, but a switcheroo backstab needs to be punished.

Then the dems will just run to New Mexico and hide like they did during the redistricting fight in 2003. Our biggest mistake then was letting them back into the state.

Why do the socialists act like little children? Well maybe that mental maturity explains why they're socialists.

I have contacted both Gov. Perry and Mr. Straus. I sincerely hope this makes it.
