The Real Walter Jones

I have been searching the blogsphere (sp?) for good NC news and opinion sites. This led me to a wonderful bio of Rep. Walter Jones on Real Values. They don't think much of young Walter but then neither do I. The one thing they miss is that Jones has so pissed off his House majority bosses by voting against the budget and his comments on the War in Iraq that he has become a virtual pariah. He cannot accomplish anything for his district. He did make a noble stand to try to increase funding for the Corp. of Engineers for inlet dredging but couldn't get it passed his own party.
Expect real challengers in the primary and in Nov. Maybe we will get a real Congressman like his daddy.
