SHAYS' REBELLION LIVES ON

I admire a maverick that has the courage to speak his/her mind. I have not always have been a fan of Congressman Chris Shays (R-CT), but he's not a popular guy in his party right now, and he's not backing down from his statements criticizing Tom DeLay. That takes some guts, when you're getting the cold shoulder from the people you know best. Of course, being a Rep from Connecticut requires a certain amount of centrism, but it's still a lonely position for a Republican in D.C. Let's give him credit.

And hope a few more representatives of his party have a great enough sense of honor and integrity to join him.

Yep, he deserves credit. Especially since he has to know that the people that will give him the most credit for now are the people who usually oppose his efforts...

If the Rethugs treat him as badly as they did Jim Jeffords, maybe he'll turn Independent and vote with the Dems. Or maybe I'm dreaming again --
