Disillusioned Bayh advocates electoral “shock” to broken system 
In an interview on MSNBC this morning, newly retiring Sen. Evan Bayh declared the American political system "dysfunctional," riddled with "brain-dead partisanship" and permanent campaigning. Flatly denying any possibility that he'd seek the presidency or any other higher office, Bayh argued that the American people needed to deliver a "shock" to Congress by voting incumbents out en masse and replacing them with people interested in reforming the process and governing for the good of the people, rather than deep-pocketed special-interest groups.

Bayh's announcement stunned the American political world, as up until just last week he looked to be well on his way to an easy reelection for a third term in the Senate, and his senior staff was aggressively pursuing that goal.

But Bayh had apparently become increasingly frustrated in the Senate. In this morning's interview he noted that just two weeks ago, Republicans who had co-sponsored a bill with him to rein in the deficit turned around and voted against it for purely political reasons. He also stated repeatedly that members of his own party should be more willing to settle for a compromise rather than holding out for perfection.

"Sometimes half a loaf is better than none," Bayh insisted...

From the little I know about him, Bayh seems to be one of the few politicians with some integrity.  I can understand his disillusionment but it's a shame the political game has run him off; we need more legislators like him, not fewer...

Sorry, but the guy cannot win... It'll be him debating against his voting record.

Another Palin, quitting to... fix things?  Lookingup    Of course the system is broken but you dont fix it by quitting. From what I have read he rode his fathers coattails and wasnt that great of a senator anyway. so, bye-bye bayh, dont let the door hit ya.

One thing that would help with some of these problems is.. Term limits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! some of these people have been in the senate far too long.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
