Retirement

Word on the street is that Denny Hastert will retire from his seat BEFORE his term ends.

Let me propose a new law right here. If you retire before your term ends and it triggers a special election, as Denny's action would do, YOU must pay for the special election.

Seriously, I get it how you don't want to watch someone in your job, especially a girl. But he ran, he won his election and buddy, you need to stay put. Especially when it'll cost the taxpayers to find a replacement. Add in the cost of candidates running a campaign in early 2008 and then again in November.

And yes, I have thought the same thing before when Dems step aside.

Of course, if you're very sick and need to retire, that's fine. But just to retire, nope...not...cool.
