“CUT THEIR PAY AND SEND THEM HOME:” I was all set to write a snarky item about Lamar Alexander’s proposal (back when running for President) to limit Congress by cutting their pay and sending them home, and how his tune had changed now that he was running for Senate. But when I checked (yeah, I do that) I found that he’s still saying it. (Scroll down to Plain Talk commentary 6, or click here to hear it in WMA, or here for RealAudio). I just hadn’t heard that ad. (They mostly seem to be running the gun commercials here).
