Well Mister Jeffords, looks like your plans didn't end up quite the way you thought they would, eh? And now you want to rejoin the GOP IF you can keep your commiittee chairship? As if the GOP needed you anymore. Traitor. Ye shall reap what ye have sown.
This is probably one of the more pathetic stories of the year. Schmuck bolts the party to feel self-important, then realizes that he's worthless and wants to come back to the party...nice to see GOP leadership show some spine for once.
He must live in his own little delusional world in Vermont. Lets see, I turned the Senate over to the Democrats, and even if I rejoin you, I'll still vote against most of your policies. Anyway, can I join you and keep my chairmanship? Jim, the only thing your going to be getting is the Senate office in the boiler room. You already received your 30 pieces of silver, now live with it.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.
When Saddam was initially captured, I saw a few stories that Kurdish forces had captured him and alerted the US Military, who then drugged him and staged the whole "spider-hole" thing. Never saw anybody follow up on those stories, though.
