A Capitol Hill newspaper fingered Sen. Saxby Chambliss as the top suspect in the bashing of the Boss by the GOP-led Senate earlier this month, but the Georgia Republican said through a spokeswoman Monday he played no role in turning Washington into the badlands for Bruce Springsteen.
Since the spiking of a resolution honoring the music legend before the Thanksgiving holiday recess, no senator has come forward to claim responsibility. But a Monday report in Roll Call identified Chambliss as the most likely culprit — a charge he denied.
Saxby should take ownership of this. The base would love it. I really doubt it would hurt him politically in Georgia.
