Byrd Caves

Kos just put this up.

What got me was this line about Byrd's opponent's campaign rationale:

A multimillionaire businessman entered the GOP race to challenge Sen. Robert C. Byrd on Wednesday, hoping to deny the 88-year-old incumbent Democrat a record ninth term.

John Raese, 55, said he would campaign on a platform touting free enterprise and reduced regulation, among other issues. "What I'm going to run on is a rebirth of capitalism," he said.

Yeah, in a month where 14 WV miners lost their lives, due in large part to inadequate mine oversight, sure, let's go no regulation. Makes perfect sense to me. At least in this world.
