Max Baucus (D, Montana) cuts and runs.

And this is pretty epic, too: between his warning of the upcoming Obamacare trainwreck (that Max Baucus helped crash in the first place, mind), and his display of the Hawaiian Good-Luck Symbol to gun-grabbers last week, old Max there isn’t retiring┬áso much as he’s smacking the self-destruct button on his secret volcano lair on his way to the escape pad.
