It is not just Democrats who can go politically senile in the twilight of their careers. Jack Murtha is Exhibit A. John Dean is Exhibit B.

In both instances, the individual became publicly irrelevant, not in the abstract, but markedly less than he thought he was entitled to. Both discovered, probably by accident because neither is the sharpest tool in the shed, that if they said bizarre things contrary to the tenets of their party, the press would start paying attention to them.

Then, they made the classic error of mistaking attention (and ridicule) for agreement. They thought they were "somebody" again. And so they were -- but as sideshow freaks.

Did I miss anything?

P.S. Interested in a Freeper in Congress? Keep in touch with me.

I think both Dean and Murtha took an express train from puberty to senility.

If you move to Florida, I'll vote for you, meanwhile it's Senator Katherine Harris in my plans.
