Sensenbrenner retirement rumored

Human Events, which named Sensenbrenner its "Man of the Year" for 2006, reports:
HASTERT, PRYCE, WHO’S NEXT? Republicans on Capitol Hill were wondering last week if a GOP retirement flood might be getting under way after former House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R.-Ill.) and Representatives Deborah Pryce (R.-Ohio) and Chip Pickering (R.-Miss.) all announced they would not run for re-election next year. Pryce, as vice chairman of the GOP Conference, is the fourth-ranking House Republican. Coming days after seven-termer Ray LaHood (R.-Ill.) announced his exit from Congress, the latest exits have increased speculation that a large number of long-serving Republican House members will soon say they are calling it quits, fearing ’08 will be a bad year for the GOP. Among the most talked-of “no-go” prospects are veteran GOP Representatives Ralph Regula (Ohio), Elton Gallegly (Calif.), Jim Sensenbrenner (Wis.) and Bill Young (Fla.).

Please, please, let it be true. Free at last! Free of Senselessbrenner at last!

And we're still basking in being free of Tommy! at last. Only a couple of dozen more past-their-prime fools on my list that gotta go from here.
