a true republican dies

Georgia Republican Congressman Charles Norwood died Tuesday. He was a member of the Republican class of '94.

He wasn't the Republican with the longest seniority, but he learned quickly how the Gingrich/DeLay Republican Congressional majority treated bipartisanship. For example, in 2006 a Democrat complained when Norwood cut off questioning at a mine safety hearing. Norwood's reply? "When you get in charge, you get to run the damn thing. Right now, you're not."

A true Republican.
