This is were the corporations hijacked the Senate.

I believe we should go back to the constitutional selection of becomming a U.S. Senator.  Most of those now serving would be out and states legislatures could remove them based on performance.

So, no one but me calls it creeping awkwardly back to Loserville with one’s tail tucked in shame between her legs after obtusely showing much more of her curmudgeonly old political hiney to peers and voters than they will ever live long enough to appreciate enduring with nauseating repulsion, huh? Whoa!‘kay…....

Fine. Let me join the phony applause queued to be PC and polite, I guess.
