Sure looks like a lot of the Democrat incumbents have seen the handwriting on the wall, and have realized that their days in Congress are numbered. They have been weighed in the balances by their constituents, and are found wanting. As a result, Democrat incumbents are dropping like flies.

The latest? Illinois Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh,who joins Patches Kennedy of RI, Chris Dodd of CT, and Sen. Byron Dorgan of ND in unexpected retirement.

Next on the list could be my own representative, William Delahunt of Massachusetts, who, after Scott Brown swept to a Senate victory last month, and amid some possibly troubling information swirling around the Amy Bishop tenure shootings, has indicated that he also may not seek re-election.

The bottom line?

We’re mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it any more.

    May those continue to disappear from Washington and may many intelligent, sensible, constitution-loving citizens start tossing their hats in the ring!

    I hope we see incumbents all over getting pitched. I am one of those populist rubes who subscribes to the notion that politicians and diapers both need to changed frequently, and for the same reason.
