The guys over at Powerline Blog have some opinions on Alcee Hastings. He represents the 23rd Congressional district in Florida right down the road from where I live. The district is highly racially gerrymandered. He has been pretty vocal in this whole health care drama. I have watched his entire career unfold over the years and all I can say is it is a shame guys such as he get elected, from either party. If you don't know who the man is here is his Wikipedia entry.
