A Little Sap Runs in Vermont

Wednesday, 23 May 2001 12:00 AM

Jeffords is a sap whose been running down the left side of the tree for a long time now.

He was a whiner long before he got his tender feelings hurt by being passed over for an invite to a White House ceremony. Boo-hoo!

He voted against impeaching Clinton, long before President Bush took office.

He amassed one of the most leftwing voting records in the Senate, long before President Bush took office.

He was one of the biggest and most irresponsible spenders in the Congress, long before President Bush took office.

He aligned himself with the left by voting with Democrats on key organizational - normally party line - votes, long before President Bush took office.

No, President Bush didn’t "force” Jeffords over to the left, he was always there.

Will this shake things up for a while in Washington?

Of course it will.

And it might just as well be now.

It’s time to wake up and shake up some key Republicans on Capitol Hill.

Senate Majority (not for long now) Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., has served more than enough time and he’s done more than enough damage. It’s time for him to go.

And it’s time to energize conservatives throughout America to organize and fund the 2002 Congressional Elections to ensure that the majority is won back in the Senate and increased in the House.

So if the sap actually runs to the left tomorrow, we’ll know that he’s been running in that direction for a long, long time.

But don’t pay any heed to the bellyachers who are already blaming this on President Bush. They blame him when their baseball game is rained out, as well as for everything else that goes wrong under the sun. It is

As for Jeffords, good riddance.
