Okay, Today's Pop Quiz

What does this group of senators have in common?

Alexander (R-TN), Barrasso (R-WY), Bond (R-MO), Brownback (R-KS), Bunning (R-KY), Burr (R-NC), Chambliss (R-GA), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Corker (R-TN), Cornyn (R-TX), Crapo (R-ID), DeMint (R-SC), Ensign (R-NV), Enzi (R-WY), Graham (R-SC), Gregg (R-NH), Inhofe (R-OK), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Kyl (R-AZ), McCain (R-AZ), McConnell (R-KY), Risch (R-ID), Roberts (R-KS), Sessions (R-AL), Shelby (R-AL), Thune (R-SD), Vitter (R-LA), Wicker (R-MS)

Trick question. They are all Republicans, all white males, mostly southern, okay. But there's more to this story.

These are the only members of the senate to vote FOR rape. In the aftermath of the notorious Halliburton employee rape case, the senate then took up the cause with the Franken Government Contract anti-rape bill. Seems to me that this would be a straightforward slam dunk, with all 100 senators supporting it.

Nope, not these guys. And I note that there are a couple of names in there who have made the news recently for sexual-misconduct issues, particularly Vitter and Ensign. How they can have the nerve to vote against something like this is beyond me.

Anyway, all of you people who live in the states "served" by these assholes, here's your job for the next couple of years: Send these fuckers home and replace them with Democrats!

Of course they love rape, they let Wall Street rape our tax dollars away from us for tanking the economy. Now they're raping us on health care reform. Rape is always about power and control and these politicos beat off on it.
