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.

You can be our next waltermitty, although perhaps a slightly better-informed version, and without the fetish for really old women. 
I can cook scrambled eggs and bacon or fry a hamburger on the George Foreman, or, with assistance, fix spaghetti.

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.
