National Journal Rankings

Johnny and Saxby are the sixth and ninth most conservative senators respectively.

Rep. Westmoreland is the sixth most conservative congressman and John Lewis is the most liberal member of the Georgia congressional delegation.

Also of note is that, if the National Journal’s methods are to be trusted, Congressman Marshall is perfectly moderate (as opposed to say, slightly moderate, or radically moderate).

    It’s not lost on me that Sen. Isakson, after promotion from the generally more partisan, ideological House to the generally more moderate, temperate Senate, actually became more of a conservative actor.

    I like it. 🙂 (sorry Rugby…)

    Has Johnny changed? I don’t think so. The fact that he appears so conservative compared to the Washington DC crowd speaks volumes about the leftward drift in this country and the fact that the rest of the country (outside the South) is probably going to have to experience a liberal Democratic presidency to remember why they don’t like them.

    rightofcenter, this is not a comparison of DC to the rest of the nation. Rather, it is an objective viewing of how elected officials vote.

    Johnny has changed. He used to be a moderate and a good representative of the Main Street Partnership.

  4. Jeff Emanuel says:

    Thank goodness he’s not representative of the Main Street Partnership!! (even though he’s still a member) [Update: I stand corrected. Sen Isakson is not a RMSP member, and apparently has not been for some time — a point greatly in his favor, in my opinion.]
    Such a bunch of milquetoast “Republicans” has never before existed — and they should be driven from Washington as quickly as possible.
