    have been jumping up and down, and yelling, and pointing at this disgraceful group with  limited success, i suppose.  But I hope that this vote will maybe stick in some folks' memory.  As I've been telling anyone who will listen (and several who'd rather not) the most loathsome aspect of this vote was the utter dishonesty of it.  None of these guys believe one single word of that UN-sovereignty nonsense.  A very sad moment for integrity, for those of us who have prided ourselves in doing an honest day's work.

    the best lack all conviction while the worst are full of passionate intensity

      families.  Enough vote like this and Republicans will undercut their own base from within.  They strangely retain their "Strong on Defense" reputation even though they do not really support true national security in any way.  And they do not support veterans, particularly disabled veterans.

      As that message gets through, there will be more corrosion of their base support. This kind of vote makes it personal. People don't forget that.
