Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Rating Chet

Progressive Punch rates Cong. Chet Edwards 67.57% progressive. This should be food for thought to the handful of folks continually e-mailing me about how he's a "Democrat In Name Only," who votes with the Republicans "80% of the time." Incidentally, Cong. Joe Barton, who one e-mailer claimed was "virtually identical" to Chet, rates 5.17%. At the Republic Party State Convention, Cong. Pete Sessions claimed Chet voted with Nancy Pelosi "75% of the time." Except her score is 93.62%. So what does all this mean? It means, as I have said all along, that Chet is a moderate, and the choice for progressives in November is clear; vote for someone who agrees with you 67.57% of the time, or sit on your hands and help elect someone who will oppose you 100% of the time. Pick one.
