Silent

I'm taking a break.

(And I have to say, what with revelations of yet more CIA secret prisons in Europe and the Senate actually voting on institutionalizing bigotry in this country? That you guys aren't donig a very good job of taking care of things while I'm out of touch.)

The vote failed. That's gotta count for something....

How could you have let it come to a vote?

Seriously. I'm shocked. Every time I almost convince myself these guys can't be as stupid, vindictive, and mean-spirited as they seem, they do something that proves they are. There was no expectation, or desire for this to pass.

To paraphrase the West Wing, they don't want the law, they want the issue. On the table. All they wanted was to drum up a groundswell of bigoted fury from the socially conservative and the right-wing nutcases.

If this is their strategy for November, we can expect an ugly, ugly election cycle.
