Congressman Jim Moran, who represents the next district over from me, is finally retiring after 35 years of glassy-eyed, mouth-breathing disservice to Virginia. While it's always possible that he may ultimately be succeeded by someone equally obnoxious and "progressive" - he does represent Arlington, after all - I propose to celebrate the moment.

Update: Smitty, over at The Other McCain, has endured Moran as his congressman for 15 years. He is - how shall I put this? - mildly pleased that this political excrescence is returning to private life.
