Don't take that to mean I am shocked or surprised. I'm not. I always expected this putrid piece of shit Torture Bill to pass. And I never realistically expected the Dems to rise to the most important challenge to the Constitution of our lifetimes and actually get off their asses and filibuster...
I'm at a loss for words because I actually cannot reconcile my feelings about this. I just don't know what to say.
For days, I've been unable to really put something together on this. It's too big, too important. This is truly a historical fuckup happening here. I've read some good stuff over the last couple days from people who could actually get a handle on this issue. Perhaps I'll throw some links down later. Right now, I'm going to bed with a gigantic knot in my stomach. Not because this thing passed—that was a foregone conclusion. It's the fact that thirteen Democrats and one fake Democrat (Lieberman) supported this. I'm going to need some time to reassess. An incredibly disappointing episode for the party from the start.
This I do know. Debbie Fucking Stabenow is dead to me. I cannot vote for her. Not this fall. Not ever.
