With the demise of the Singing Senators quartet [Sen. John Ashcroft (R-MO, defeated), Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID, “stalled”), Sen. James Jeffords (
R I-VT, wised-up), Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS, money!)], I would like to propose a new group: The “Singing” Republicans.
The new quartet would be composed of former and soon-to-be former Republican office holders who have had some stuff to sing about:
Sen. David Vitter (R–LA)
Rep. Mark Foley (R–FL 16)
Sen. John Ensign (R–NV)
Gov. Mark Sanford (R–SC)
