Abramoff and Sen. Burns

Via Daily Kos:

This story coming out in Vanity Fair is the tip of the iceberg for a lot of Republicans in Washington. The main target is going to be Sen. Conrad Burns as of right now.

Virginia Centrist thinks this is a bad thing because Burns will drop out and the Republicans will replace him with someone stronger. I politely disagree. I feel getting an incumbent out of a race is net plus because it will cause major disorganization in the Montana Republican Party. I'm not naive enough to think the GOP hasn't thought about this. But it will take a lot of effort that would not have to be expended if Burns were in the race (i.e name recognition, fundraising).

Either way, I think Burns is going down. It's just another piece in the puzzle to slowly take back the U. S. Senate.
