Not Voting – 6
A couple of observations:
1) Hillary and Obama both opposed the measure, I wonder if it were just a political move on their part or actually sincere.
2) I am really pissed off to have phonebanked, canvassed, and gave my money for some of these freshmen Democratic Senators (esp. Sherrod Brown from Ohio) and see them vote this way. I really don’t have any respect for anyone who voted for this, but for God’s sake, these people have FIVE AND A HALF YEARS before they need reelected! What the hell was THEIR reasoning for their vote??!!??
Here’s to the best of my knowledge a list of people we all busted our ass for in ’06 that apparently don’t “get it”:
Brown (D-OH), Casey (D-PA), Klobuchar (D-MN), McCaskill (D-MO), Stabenow (D-MI), Tester (D-MT), Webb (D-VA).
3) Maybe I am just goofy, but I’m half tempted to send $10 to the reelection campaigns of the three REPUBLICAN senators who voted against this bill…….just to show I’m an issues guy and not just a straight ticket voter/activist.
4) Can we just write in a Kerry/Fiengold ticket in 2008? Please???
