Democratic Congressman Parker Griffith will switch to GOP over Health Care Bill

Democratic Congressman Parker Griffith, one of the few doctors in Congress, will switch to become a Republican because he is so upset with the Democratic health care bill. From Politico:

Griffith, who captured the seat in a close 2008 open seat contest, will become the first Republican to hold the historically Democratic, Huntsville-based district. A radiation oncologist who founded a cancer treatment center, Griffith plans to blast the Democratic health care bill as a prime reason for his decision to switch parties—and is expected to cite his medical background as his authority on the subject. . . .

Ah yes, my representative. A lot of old-school conservative democrats here aren't terribly happy with his decision, but that won't matter too much.
