TUCSON -- News from Washington today is the #2 Republican in the US Senate, Trent Lott (MS) will likely resign by the end of this year so he can make more money as a lobbyist.
The corrupt revolving door in DC between industry and government never stops.
A part of this story is speculation Lott will support Jon Kyl (R-AZ) to replace him.
Readers of this blog know I am no fan of Bush/Cheney puppet Jon Kyl, but I support Kyl for the Minority Whip position.
As Whip, a conservative extremist like Kyl will show people how badly today's GOP is out-of-touch with mainstream American democratic values, furthering the demise of the Republicans in the 2008 elections.
The downside for Arizonans is Kyl will continue to embarrass our fine state nationally and worldwide with his anti-public-interest politics.
With Kyl as Whip in DC focused on national party politics, and candidate John McCain everywhere but AZ or in the Senate, Arizona will essentially have no real voice in the Senate.
Dial 202 to reach these guys, not 602.
Go Kyl! Take the sinking Republican ship to the bottom.
