The Best "Man" for the Job...is Barbara Boxer
It is with a great deal of pride that I'm entering this blog to announce that the one Senator with enough courage to consider standing with Rep. John Conyers and the other House Democrats challenging the election results is the Senator from my home state of California, Sen. Barbara Boxer. She as much implied she would be taking stances like this one at her Christmas Party I attended at the Old Mint in San Francisco this season. She mentioned what Conyers was trying to do, and encouraged her collegues in the Senate to consider assisting his effort by signing off on the objection.
The best man for this job...continues to be a woman who has convictions, spunk and courage to act on her values. It also helps that she won't be up for re-election until 2010, long after the Bush Cartel leaves office...unless his brother gets the nod for 2008.
The male Democrats in the Senate should be ashamed that a woman is standing up to do something they won't...challenge the Nixon rule (which is a tacit agreement not to challenge questionable election results).
Not to limit my diatribe to male Democrats in the Senate (cause some of them are card carrying members of the DLC, also), but guess who else you won't see joining Conyers in announcing his objections?
All card-carrying DLC members. Ya think?
I bet you thought I was going to say moderate Republicans, but I'm beginning to believe there's no such animal as a moderate Republican. If there are any, trust me, they have been muzzled.
