One of Colorado's U.S. Senators, Wayne Allard, once again shamed us (Coloradans) in the United States Senate this week. Firstly: This Bush boot-licker was one of only nine senators to oppose the McCain amendment to the defense budget bill that would mandate in no uncertain terms that the United States will not torture prisoners of war. Allard--once again, one of only nine senators--voted against the amendment. Secondly: This flatlander dullard reintroduced his Defense of Marriage Act in the U.S. Senate, clearly in an effort to divert attention from the disintegration of the Bush administration.
This morning's Rocky Mountain News includes an excellent piece by columnist Bill Johnson on the shameful and embarrassing behavior of this ignoble politician.
P.S. Flatlanders are those, usually from rural, flat land areas of the country, who, indeed, believe the world is flat; that Dubya is doin' a fine job; and that gay men and lesbians have never worn a uniform and died in defense of their country. Additionally, flatlanders believe in intelligent design, as the good folks in Topeka have made abundantly clear.
