"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."This statement by Jones brought the Sarah Palin resignation to mind. Palin was skewered by many for being a quitter, but Palin's similar reasoning was that she wouldn't be able to govern effectively while defending against all the suits thrown up against her. All those lawsuits came to nothing. Jones was nailed dead to rights. He took one-tenth of one per cent of the abuse that Palin received for one-tenth of one per cent of the time and wilted like a buttercup in the desert sun. Palin came out in the open swinging and was instrumental in the current shake up in the ObamaCare push. Jones will return to his hole and snipe from behind cover.
