More from Senator Robert "How Did Those Holes Get In My Pillowcases?" Byrd

Glenn Reynolds over at Instapundit points to two things: Byrd's "column" at the Washington Post, and an excellent rebuttal from Brendan Nyhan of Duke. Nyhan whomps on Byrd far more precisely and intelligently than I ever could, so I won't even make the attempt. It saddens me, though, to see Byrd in the Senate, fighting for a style of government that has gone the way of the dodo. Byrd represents the last of the smoke-filled-room politicians, people like Tip O'Neill and Sam Rayburn, who thought that a handshake in a back room was what everything came down to. I know Byrd gets blasted quite a bit for all of the money and projects he brings home to WV, but that's the one thing I cannot fault him for; that's his job, and he does that part of it admirably.
