Evan Bayh, the man who wanted to be Hillary's veep, but couldn't even carry his home state of Indiana for her - not to mention her luggage on a sunny day, announced yesterday that he has chosen not to run for a third term in the Senate. His announcement came after he had already collected $13 million in donations for the election, and only one day ahead of the deadline for another Democrat to jump in and take his place on the ballot - something that did not happen. Bayh's swan song, with his picture-perfect family standing at his side, contained much pissing and moaning about the way Congress works.
He should be able to recognize the short-comings of Congress - he was a big part of the problem!
Today Bayh took another shot at Congress and seemed to be aiming specifically at his Democratic colleagues. He said on The Early Show: "If I could create one job in the private sector by helping to grow a business, that would be one more than Congress has created in the last six months."
A senior House Democratic aide responded to that horse shit with this gem:
“It is hard to stomach lectures from Sen. Bayh on jobs. For most Americans, if they were as unproductive in their jobs as Bayh has been in his, they wouldn’t have the luxury of quitting — they would be fired.”
But don't worry about the Bayh family missing any meals. The senator will park his privileged butt on K Street and make a nice living peddling influence as a lobbyist - a promotion from whore to pimp. Enjoy the money, Evan, and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out of the Capitol!
