Mad Max? Really?

Harry Reid's three warriors for the Fellowship Of The Bling have been chosen:

In the first of what will be a closely watched selection process for a powerful new deficit panel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he will appoint Democratic Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.), Max Baucus (Mont.) and John Kerry (Mass.) as his three choices for a super committee charged with finding more than $1 trillion in spending cuts by the end of this year.

Baucus? Really?

Baucus is disturbingly pro-business for a Democrat. He was in favor of the citizen rape that was the bankruptcy reform bill, opposed single-payer healthcare, voted against the repeal of tax credits for companies that outsource American jobs, and has among the most former staffers working as lobbyists in DC of any member of the Senate.

This is the guy we want to help secure our financial future?
