When I woke up this morning, I thought it was impossible for there to be a Republican Senator I dislike more than Arlen Specter (evidence here, here, and here). Someone must have passed that note along to Senator Richard Shelby because by the end of the day he’d submitted his resume in triplicate to take a seat beside Arlen on my shit-list.
Today, in a simply baffling move, Shelby took part in filibustering a Republican Tort Reform Bill. With Class Action suits simply out of control and damages annually equaling 2% of GDP, this would have gone a LONG way towards legal fairness, not to mention the economic boom that would’ve ensued.
SHAME RICHARD SHELBY! SHAME!
