... on the Ron Reagan show, with Nicole Sandler subbing, that Max Baucus has been acting true to what he believes. It’s like I’ve suggested for a while: Baucus is doing his job. It’s just a stupid job. :)

People who say they voted for Democrats not to do what Baucus has been doing are, in all but a few cases, people who did not vote for Max Baucus. That’s not how our system works. Instead, we have Max Baucus powerfully representing a tiny minority of Americans. It sucks, but that’s how we are set up – and it is better for us than are most alternatives.

And people ought to keep in mind that the Senate’s self-proclaimed ‘democratic socialist’, Bernie Sanders, represents an even smaller number of people. It sucks; Bernie Sanders is too powerful. But that’s what we have to work with.
