A cursory examination of the record, courtesy of Vote-Smart.org shows that Joey L. basically has his head on straight. He did vote against the $150 billion tax cut, desiring to use that money to pay down the national debt instead, and he did vote against the amendment that would have prohibited "desecration" of the American flag. But he also voted for the use of force against Iraq, one of the wimpiest (and most divisive amongst Democrats) "resolutions" on record. Conservative commentators dislike him, which could be a good thing. Next up, a general survey of popular opinion.

Oh, and he voted not to impeach Clinton, which was the right and proper thing to do.
