It looks as though the Republican Party has dodged a bullet. Saxby Chambliss appears to be winning Georgia’s run-off Senate election, meaning that he’ll keep his seat and the Democrats won’t get a filibuster-proof majority of 60 Senators.
Sen. Chambliss was one of the Republicans who most deserved to lose in this year’s thumpin’. He has carried water for President George Bush XLIII’s unConstitutional expansions of federal power, from the PATRIOT Act to the bail-out. He represents what’s gone wrong with the Party of Reagan.
Personally, I’m not placing any bets.
