I'm not counting Dave Leip.  He used to be the only moderator when I first started posting here.  There were no "infraction points" or anything like that back then.  I'd just get an email message once in a while that said something like, "Please avoid drunken, emotional diatribes.  Thank you, Dave Leip" or "Please refrain from linking to pornographic websites.  Thank you, Dave Leip."

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Jesse Helms and John Edwards.

Edit: Wow, not only has someone mentioned them, but it was in the first post.

Most of the good ones have been said already, but here are some others:

Max Baucus/Conrad Burns, Mitch McConnell/Rand Paul, and Harry Reid/John Ensign (lol).

I am guaranteed $10.00/hr, but could make up to $16.00/hr.  That's not including all the sales games they have.  AT&T likes to throw money around.

Mark Kirk and Dick Durbin, anyone?

One's a centrist Republican, the other a liberal Dem. Not quite 180.

Interparty: Rubio/Nelson
Intraparty: Boxer/DiFi

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

No way Rubio and Nelson are the most bipolar current pair. Besides Kirk and Durbin there's also Grassley and Harkin.
