Our National Legislators from Left to Right

Also saw this over at "Postman on Politics" the other day.
The National Journal has rated all Senators and Representatives from most liberal to most conservative. Not surprisingly, Washington's two senators put us up there with Massachusetts in liberality. Senator Tennis Shoes Mom is #8, ranked above even above John Kerry. Senator Cantdowell is #22, whch still puts ahead of gun grabbers Dianne Feinstein and Chuckie Schumer, and Billary Clinton.

In the House, we fare much better. Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers is 26th most conservative.

Slightly off topic, Presidential candiate John McCain is 46th most conservative. Perhaps that is why he rejected an invitation to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend. Mitt Romney won the CPAC straw poll.

Meanwhile, in our Palousitics Presidential straw poll, Romney has overtaken McCain for second place, with dark horse libertarian-leaning Ron Paul only 2 points behind McCain in 4th place.
