...well, because Harry Reid is taking the position that the CCB ranks up there with The Fugitive Slave and Indian Removal Acts in terms of sheer vileness. In other words, Harry Reid is a contemptible, pig-ignorant suckweasel who lies when it suits him - and he got his position via a fair election of his Democratic peers in the Senate. Please remember: there is no such thing as a conservative Democratic politician.
But there are a surprisingly large number of cowardly Democratic politicians, so keep calling those Senators. Particularly the ones up for re-election next year.
