Bart Stupak Announces That He Won't Seek Re-Election

Less than a month after selling out the unborn for a worthless and largely ceremonial piece of paper signed by President Obama, Representative Bart Stupak (D-MI, 1st District) announced that he will not seek re-election this fall.

First and foremost, this begs the question of whether or not Stupak even got his executive order from Obama prohibiting federal funding of healthcare plans that covered abortions. I also have to wonder if 0bamacare is so wonderful and popular, how come Stupak is stepping down? Retiring is a whole lot easier than Stupak defending his 0bamacare vote for the next 8 months or so.

The announcement still give the Democrats time to field a candidate in the 1st district against Republican Dan Benishek.
