Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Former Majority Leader Bob Dole was joined on the Senate floor on Tuesday by former Sen. Elizabeth Dole, making an appearance in order to bolster support for an international treaty affirming the rights of people with disabilities.

The treaty is expected to fail due to GOP opposition. It requires a two-thirds vote for ratification.

And it failed.  Because... freedom or some shit like that.
