Senator Jim Jeffords died today. He was the hero who, in 2001, left the Republican Party and became an independent, taking control of the Senate away from the Republicans. He did this because the party refused to fund education programs promised by George W Bush. Jeffords was upset with the rigged game of campaigning on popular social programs but later refusing to fund them. I'm breaking out the Jonnie Walker and drinking to a good American who did his part.
