Brodereeze from Pearlstein

As they noted at Balloon Juice...oy!

...many good people either have been reduced to shameless pandering (John McCain) or are simply giving up and going home (Byron Dorgan, Evan Bayh, Billy Tauzin).

McCain has always been a gigantic panderer...especially to the press corps, sickeningly so. Bayh, see below. Dorgan I'll let off, but Tauzin?

Billy Tauzin never went home. He resigned, during his term, to land a seven-figure job with the pharmaceutical industry so he could steer home the legislation he'd been pushing at their bidding for 20 times less the money.

To call that asshole a "good person" is sickening.
