...his era of being hamstrung, duct-taped, getting the shit kicked out of him, then being sealed in cement and thrown off a bridge is over.

I disagree with you strongly, DB. Dennis did all he was allowed to do -- and was the last true, strong voice in Congress.

FTR, I'm not blind to his faults -- I've verbally kicked his ass in the past -- but I am eternally grateful to him for everything he did that he could, and I would have given my eyeteeth to see him as POTUS. I still would.
