Dean Barkley is your new Senator. I had my hopes up upon seeing the the name, as I thought perhaps Dean Malenko had been cloned with Charles Barkley. Imagine, a Senator with mic skills and work rate. (Does this tangent tell you how highly I think of the Dean). At least if he picked his garbageman, it would have been a funny pick.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

I guess that is one reason to LIKE Jesse. I mean, it makes sense to appoint a Democrat (though I thought voters voted for a canditate, and not a party, and therefore anyone could be appointed and it would be ok... but that is me..). No one could complain about that choice. But he actually stood up, being one of the few who COULD do anything about the insult of that farce of a memorial service, and slapped the Democrats in the face without really helping the Republicans at all. Classic.

His bigger problem was, IMO, that he is associated as the loser when the Reps won control of the House in '94. His other problem was running an old school campaign in 2004. Running your campaign from 16 years ago didn't cut it.
