  • Richard Burr: objectionable and vulnerable

    In my depressing-ass post yesterday, I noted that Lisa Murkowski's departure from the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee would leave Richard Burr (R-N.C.) as the ranking Republican. Burr, I said, "seems unobjectionable." It has been pointed out by certain interested parties that despair is no excuse for abandoning standards altogether. As it happens there is plenty about Burr's record to which one might reasonably object.
