Hero Senate quitter Evan Bayh explained absolutely nothing about the reasons for his retirement at his press conference a little earlier. Except that he wishes everyone in the Senate was Dick Lugar. What he didn't mention: he didn't tell Obama or Reid about his plans, and the filing deadline for a candidate looking to replace him is tomorrow. If you won't vote for his Bipartisan Deficit Commission, Evan Bayh will take all of you motherfuckers out.

(And: these kids you see above are apparently twins?)

Update: Roll Call says he told Reid and Obama that he was considering retirement. But, you know, the whole "filing deadline is tomorrow and the Democrats have no candidate" thing makes it seem like he never confirmed this.
