    Interesting. They are attempting to grant native Hawaiians a status similar to Native Americans. The separate treatment of Native Americans is, legally at least, based on the tribes' unique status as dependent sovereigns, not simply race.

    Hey nice to see Texas knuckledraggers send the last WWII veteran in Congress up for re-election packing during the primaries.

    Hope you guys are proud of yourselves...

    Yup. For the party that never passed on an opportunity to wrap themselves in the flag, they have a funny way of supporting the people who actually do the fighting. Must be the legacy of Dick "5 Deferments" Cheney.

    He's 91. Let somebody younger take his place. The era of the Whitten's, Thurmond's, etc. has ended.

    I'm sure you would have been at the front of the line to vote for him.

    So what? He already said it was going to be his last term. To my knowledge he's not involved in any scandals. What Congress could use is more people who have this sort of experience, instead of turning to the Knuckledragger Du Jour who probably ducked out of fighting when the shooting started like most conservatives do (Bush II, Cheney, McConnell, Romney, Boehner, etc etc etc).

    Got any aging out Dems you'd be all akimbo if they lost a primary to a young whippersnapper?

    Oh wait, Dems don't have contested primaries.

    This is such a silly line of thinking. We want experience yet we are flabbergasted that we vote people back in who have an approval rating lower than killer bees and Ebola.

    And what meaningful legislation has Hall authored in the past two years? What other contributions has he made? If he's just sitting on the payroll, who cares? His Congressional pension is probably asstastically well-paying as well.
