So long, Stupak!

Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich) has announced his retirement from Congress. Good riddance! Obviously, the Republican voters weren’t going to vote for him. What made it a losing battle for him is his power-play threatening to derail the health-care reform. Being independent is good, is admirable. But there’s a time and a place. Being the man standing in the way of monumental improvements to improve the lives of millions of people who have been born and are suffering now was undesirable. And in a state like Michigan, hard-hit by the economy, watching their Rep. threaten to block their healthcare…there was no WAY they were going to vote for him.

He got his 15 minutes of fame, but now he’s done. Had he left well-enough alone, he might still be electable, and able to continue his efforts. But he shot his load too early, and now he’s having to abort his re-election campaign.
