Well, putting it plainly, the Repugs hated ADA right from the start, so this is long-lingering sour grapes (I recall well the "nanny state" whining about that legislation). Then, Frothy himself--the new king of the congealed brain set--agitated against it, and there was lots of grumbling about the UN language requiring reproductive rights for the disabled.

What can one say? They're assholes, and that's the way they're gonna behave.

Maybe the Senate could at least pass a resolution condemning delusional crackpots who think a matter of simple human decency is the equivalent of "communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subervsion, and the international communist conspiracy" sapping and impurifying their precious bodily fluids.

A primary challenge from the right? In Mississippi? Whoever it is, I bet he or she wears actual jackboots.

Ditto to above 3 comments.

Like you say, it makes America the model for the world (shall I break out in a round of "America the Beautiful?). Plus it is non-binding - dare I say a purely symbolic vote ?

Growing up in a fundamentalist environment, I heard much of how the UN / Euro-zone (take your pick) was the one world govt and a crucial step in getting the antichrist over a one-world-govt which was to happen during the tribulation. The Euro actually had a better fit as there were 10 countries in the Euro at the time and the monster had 7 heads and 10 horns. Haven't stopped back by to see what the Hal Lindsay group say now that the Euro has more countries).

The other part was that going metric would take America away from being God's country as it would allow the USA to easily join the one world govt.

OTOH - part of the schtick was that everyone would have to have an identity number to take part in any transaction (oppossed to SS number as that would be he mark of the beast). So I was shocked when the same camp suddenly became behind the idea of a national identity papers via the requirements for verifying your identity for a driver's license as well as needing a national picture ID to vote.

BBBbbbuuutt the RNC is re-inventing itself.

Votes no to disability.
Opposed to equal pay for women.
Boehner claims he is leading being compromising while vowing to make this a 4-year lame duck.

Regular fist bump going on over in RNC world. They beat those dastardly one world blokes. Champagne corks busted and cheers all around. Poor drooling Bob of all people should have known that if you don't wield the power, the power will roll you over.

The next time you hear any of these brave wise men pontificate about how exceptional is the US of A, think back to this vote and remember what cowards these fucks really are.

make the tent SMALLER til it's a fucking pup tent

How about we reduce the power of the GOP until we can drown it in the bathroom sink?
