Hawaii Democratic Sen. Daniel Akaka will not seek re-election in 2012, the fifth Democratic or Democratic aligned incumbent to bow out already this election cycle.
Way to cut and run, Akaka! At 86, you’re probably the second- or third-youngest person in the entire Congress!
You shouldn’t be allowed to leave the Senate until you’re dead. And you shouldn’t be allowed to die until you’ve spent at least two full terms in the hospital unable to vote on any legislation.
Enjoy actually having a retirement like a real human being, asshole. [WP]
