How our Senate voted on the Mukasey confirmation

The recent vote on the confirmation of new Attorney General Mike Mukasey is illustrative of a few things.

First, the vote was mostly along party lines:
  • No Republican voted against the confirmation
  • All but 10 Democrats voted against the confirmation
  • Final tally was 53 for, 40 against

But here's the bigger issue. None of the senators in the 2008 presidential race voted!

  • Joe Biden
  • Hillary Clinton
  • Christopher Dodd
  • Barack Obama

  • Evan Bayh
  • Thomas Carper
  • Dianne Feinstein
  • Mary Landrieu
  • Ben Nelson
  • Chuck Schumer
  • Joe Lieberman (he's an infidel because he voted for the confirmation AND because he abandoned his party)
I think the Cowards identified above need to be held to account for their inaction. The infidels can go fornicate themselves.
