Why Hasn't Kent Conrad Retired Yet?

Oy, oy, oy. Kent Conrad is willing to meet Paul Ryan halfway on his awful, awful budget proposal. Politico reports:

Conrad, considered a fiscal conservative among Democrats, suggests he will stake out the middle ground in between the visions of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and President Barack Obama. Conrad hopes his budget, which he might unveil in May, will ultimately emerge as the most viable bipartisan vehicle to start whittling down the national debt.

If a crazy person claiming to be a Republican scribbled random numbers on the wall of a subway using his own feces, Kent Conrad would try to find middle ground with him. Here's to hoping someone in the White House tells the outgoing senator from North Dakota to shut his damn yapper.
