Nothing amuses this Psychologist more than watching the body language of the Senators during a vote.  Such collegiality!  Such warm feeling!  Such a show!

But, as the Republicans stand in tight formation, working each member to insure there is no waiver at the last minute, to insure that the Authoritarian Party spin is maintained, the result is always the same.

Republicans Voted Against Reforming Wall Street!

That is the frame.

That is the meme.

That is a diary title that should be on the rec list for the next two weeks.

Republicans voted against reforming Wall Street.

Simple.

Straight forward.

No wiggle room.

No nuance.

No quarter.

With more than 65% of the population supporting reform, let's nail 'em with this failure to proceed to debate and amendment in a way that any "low information voter" can get their head wrapped around.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
