Evan Bayh will now betray Democrats from private sector

Evan Bayh, the vile hypocrite and sometimes Senator from Indiana, is retiring today, according to the New York Times.  Bayh was facing a difficult reelection campaign, due in part to the nationwide perception that Democrats can’t govern, despite having overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress and control of the executive branch.  Hilariously, Evan Bayh — who loves waging war on Muslims but doesn’t believe it’s the government’s job to provide health care to its citizens — is as responsible for the Democrats’ plight as any Senator, save Ben Nelson.  It appears he’s happy with the destruction he’s wrought, and wants to get out now while the getting is good.

Bayh hasn’t given any specific plans yet for his post-Senate career, but The Hill’s article on his retirement contains this obvious and telling quote:

“At this time I simply believe I can best contribute to society in another way: creating jobs by helping grow a business, helping guide an institution of higher learning or helping run a worthy charitable endeavor.” [emphasis added.]

So…… he’s going to use his government contacts to make a lot of money in the private sector?  At least now he’s being honest.

Evan Bayh/Ben Nelson 2012!

    Go over to E.D. Kain and explain this. He thinks Progressives are imposing purity tests on insufficently liberal Dems.
