Quote of the Day: the Albany Herald edition

Some Georgians are still under the mistaken impression that they can send a representative or senator to Atlanta and that lawmaker is free to vote as he or she believes those constituents want. The truth is, it doesn’t work like that, and it hasn’t for a long time, not in Atlanta and not in Washington, D.C. Lawmakers are free to vote their convictions ... as long as those convictions don’t run afoul of positions the ruling party has a real interest in.

Shame, ain't it?
