That makes me sad. We'll probably get someone crazy to replace him. For a bit some of the moderate republicans in the senate were keeping the worst of the legislatures nuttiest at bay but they seem to be being forced out. I am unhappy about Potts leaving too. :(

I guess the legislature has become an unpleasant place lately. Dunno, Chichester was in office in 1878, that wasn't too terribly long after the Dixiecrats broke, he grew up in Virginia he probably encountered them and I am sure they were pretty polarizing, they shut down the public schools for a few years, I mean that's serious shit! I just have a hunch that some of the older Republicans (who were here pre-1980's) are probably a lot more liberal then the younger ones, Potts said it made him unhappy how there was a decline of "Eisenhower Republicans." The crap with the GOP lately must really be pulling some of the older policy republicans apart. I got the impression that some of the older politicians actually cared about how they did their job and professionalism but it really seems to be a lemons market today.
