Le déluge n'est pas fini!

Indiana Senator Evan Bayh - he of the $13 million war chest - has dropped outta the 2010 election.

Officially, Bayh says "partisanship" in Congress has impeded "progress" and that's soured him on servin' the public; thus, he's not running for re-election.

Question: Democrats have enjoyed a super-majority in the U.S. House and Senate for the past year, so how in the hell has partisanship stalled any f-ing progressive thing on the Democrats' agenda?!

That said - and I'm putting on my well-seasoned political apron when I say this - Bayh's internal polls must be pretty ugly for him to drop out when he has 13 million big-ones in the bank. Indeed.

The political death-watch now turns to Arkansas and Nevada. If the "centrist" 'n' "popular" 'n' well-funded Evan Bayh determined that he can't win this November, what're the chances that Blanhe Lincoln and Harry Reid will still be U.S. Senators next January?

Answer: Not good.
