Bye Bye Ted

Ted Stevens has lost his Senate seat.


The longest-serving Republican in the history of the Senate trailed Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich by 3,724 votes after Tuesday's count.

That's an insurmountable lead with only about 2,500 overseas ballots left to be counted.

Stevens, who turned 85 Tuesday, also revealed that he will not ask President George W. Bush to give him a pardon for his seven felony convictions.


Republcans are happy that they won't have to deal with Stevens coming back to the Senate.
