You Call This "Independence"?!?!

According to a report in today's Congressional Quarterly, Senator Jim Webb (D-WaPo) --- along with two other freshmen elected from Conservative states --- is more "independent" than his colleagues.

It seems that Senator Thinskin ... er, Webb, votes with his colleagues in the Democrat caucus "only" 90% of the time, while other Democratic freshmen have voted with a majority of the members of their party more than 95 percent of the time.

When even Lowell Fulk can figure out that this is a pretty low standard for "independence," you know that it's obviously a poor choice of words.

H/T to Raising Dough ... er, "Raising Kaine."

If you are going to play that game it should be Jim Webb (D-TimeWarner).

I don't get that, Alice; then again, I picked up the reference I used from Jim Riley. Explain?
