Childers sticks with Dems, but pundits wonder

Gee, no surprise that I’ve been wrong before.

I once wrote speeches for Lt. Amy Tuck that said something to the effect: I know people say I should switch to the GOP, but darn it, I’m a Democrat and Hell will freeze over before I ever do anything different.

Feeling colder out there?

Anyway, U.S. Rep. Travis Childers insists he’s a Democrat with a Big D, and I believe him. But there’s no doubt it’s hard to be a conservative D, although he’s found a real home with like-minded colleagues as a Blue Dog.
