    What gives? He calls himself a Democrat, doesn't he? He's from Alabama, is he not?

      Calls him one of the top five reactionary Democrats for this.

      It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.

        ...that it's not exactly shocking that all the Democratic 'Nay' votes came from blood-red states (with the possible exception of Florida, which I'd classify as pink).

        Bobby Bright and Parker Griffith should've run with the Republicans. At least then, it would be understandable.

        Instead, they have to run as Democrats and vote with the Republicans on everything.

        Didn't there used to be penalties for constantly voting against one's own party?

          Dems can usually get away with voting against the party sometimes. Regardless, I think Pelosi should take notice the next time favors are requested or committee assignments are made.

          I would classify these clowns as useful idiots, though. They do boost our numbers, though I wouldn't argue that counts for much. We have a comfortable majority.

          And yes, I think they should have run as Repubs if that's really their ideology.
