The last election put many Republicans out of work. As difficult as it is to feel sorry for Bob Schaffer, Tom Tancredo, Wayne Allard and Marilyn Musgrave, it's even more difficult to imagine them dusting off their resumes and seeking gainful employment in this brutal new economy.
Their legislative work involved lots of "posturing" on immigrants, vouchers, guns and gays. They're all going to be in for quite a shock to find that jobs in the real world are based on "productivity," and demand employees to "actually do something."
