Bayh Press Conference Reveals Nothing

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.

Rebellious Florida Tea Party Candidate Surges in Polls, Is Against Making Banks Pay Us Our Money Back

Marco Rubio is going the be the Republican candidate for Senate in Florida this year. He is handily beating formerly popular Republican Governor Charlie Crist, because Crist is too moderate and too probably gay. This Rubio guy, though—he is basically the next Scott Brown! Except that once he destroys Crist in the primaries by running way to Charlie's right, it will be a lot harder for him to shift back to Florida's soft, mushy center. Especially when he is already coming out against taxing or regulating banks at all in any fashion. (We are so baffled by these Tea Party people! Aren't they anti-bailout? Anti-bailout and anti-preventing-future-bailouts?) Oh, right: he is beating Crist in the polls. They're both ahead of the Democrat, but the Democrat has not yet begun actually campaigning against this man who loves banks so much he wants to marry them.

It would be completely inappropriate for some loser blogger to call Beau Biden, who just finished a year-long deployment to Iraq, a coward. But the Vice President's kid is a big coward.
