Great list of the people who need to be removed the very next time they come up for re-election.
I bet they think we'll forget...
Sadly, many probably will.

Three "belong" to me. One from here in Wisconsin (Kohl...big shock. He loves to do good with his own money....and other people's), Hutchinson and Cornyn from Texas (my adopted home - I really need to go back). I think the Texas senators may want to rethink where they spend Christmas.
