Why Do You Think They Call Them The Green Mountains?

From Slate's Today's Papers:

"Two of the Republicans' most loathed figures in the Senate--Sens. James Jeffords and Patrick Leahy--represent Vermont. Leahy was the Democratic Judiciary Chairman who has held up all of President Bush's judicial appointees, and Jeffords is the former Republican whose defection from the party a year and a half ago allowed Democrats to gain control of the Senate and Leahy to take his post. Now that Republicans are back in power, they are thirsting for revenge, and the NYT says Vermonters can expect a nuclear waste repository to show up in their state soon."

Now that's hardball.
