Burton Blasted

The Indianapolis Star editorial board takes Republican Congressman Dan Burton to task for missing votes to play in a celebrity golf tournament:

So here's the score: Burton would rather play golf than attend a hearing on Iraq. He shows up for work less often than a 20-year-old slacker who refuses to move out of his parents' basement. He has little shame when it comes to accepting expensive gifts. And he feels immune from voters' wrath because he's been handed a heavily gerrymandered district that might as well hang up "Democrats need not apply'' signs.

Sweet gig, Dan.

Just remember the good folks back home in Indiana when the pro-am season ends.
