Who Has Been Nice

I went over to the Senate Vote page to see how individuals voted on three items today: the Webb amendment, the habeas corpus amendment, and the “we hate free speech” sense of the Senate resolution¹. I gave Senators a point for a “yes” vote on each of the two amendments, and a point for a “no” vote on the resolution, and built a table. The people with a “2” voted “yes” on all three.

1. The Senate lacks both sense and resolution. Condemning free speech and beatifying General Petraeus in no way makes up for voting against the Webb amendment.

[I added color to make party affiliation easier to see.]

I see Senator Republican-in-all-but-name voted with his fellow ideologues 100%. Quelle surprise. As if.

This is the only way to see what’s going on, by looking at the record, not listening to the rhetoric.

Smith, Snow, and Sununu may caucus with the Repubs, but they vote for reality.
