Young to retire - 10/09/13 01:44 PM

Rep. Young of the House, the longest serving member has chosen to retire at the end of his term. He had a number of reasons for retiring, but he had some choice words to say about bipartisanship and the Tea Party. He was passed over for leadership positions in Newt Gingrich's day for working too much with Democrats in his career.

And there is celebration in this district! He also could see the writing on the wall that he would lose next year anyway.

I was hoping you'd chime in Bozo. I'd heard his district was being targeted by the Dems. I assume this raises the chances of taking it considerably.

We have a sane Dem who nearly defeated him last time who is running again, or we'll get a TP wannabe on the Rethugican side.
