The legion of evil, aka US Senate, has refused to restore the basic conscience protections afforded us by the US Constitution by tabling the Blunt Amendment.

We should seriously reconsider the use of tar and feathers as a method of seeking redress.

Key pro-abortion senators including Clare McCaskill of Missouri and Jon Tester of Montana voted against the amendment — which will energize pro-life advocates against their re-election campaigns this November. On the other side, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Ben Nelson of Nebraska were three Democrats who crossed sides and voted with Republicans to support the amendment.

Update from Matt: I, for one, don’t believe for a second that Casey or Nelson would’ve voted for the amendment if they’d been needed by the Democrats. I believe they’ve vowed fealty to the Democratic Party and feel allegiance to no other cause other than their own reelection.

If the Dems needed their vote, they would’ve been on the other side. Bet on it.
