The man who never met a Republican talking-point he didn’t adopt, from unemployment assistance to killing the public option is retiring.

Democrats on Tuesday lamented Sen. Ben Nelson’s decision to retire rather than seek a third term in Nebraska, fearing the move sets up Republicans for an easy and crucial victory in their effort to reclaim control of the chamber next year.

And somehow he jeopardizes the Democrats ability to keep the Senate…and do nothing at all with it. Oh no.

If only there was a really white douchebag knight on a white steed’s flaming bag of horse manure to keep the world safe for inanity?

Mission about to be accomplished.
