Idiots in Washington?

The anti-rape bill in congress that would allow victims to sue their attackers' companies, barely passed. It came about because a worker in Iraq was gang-raped by co-workers from Halliburton. The anti-rape bill was introduced by Al Franken (D-MN).

Who would be stupid enough to vote against it? These senators:

Alexander (R-TN)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Bunning (R-KY)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Graham (R-SC)
Gregg (R-NH)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johanns (R-NE)
Kyl (R-AZ)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Risch (R-ID)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)
Vitter (R-LA)
Wicker (R-MS)

I'm so ashamed both senators from my home state of Georgia voted against it, as did both senators from my adopted state of Tennessee.

Are they high? What's wrong with these senators? They're essentially saying they approve of rape; that rape is OK, just hush it up.

I will certainly vote against them when they next come up for election. I don't care who they are.

I seldom get political online, but this just burned my butt. The votes against it were all Republican because a Democrat introduced it. I'm neither R or D, but good grief; can't they put party politics aside and work for the good of the country, not themselves and their party? The Republicans sure stabbed themselves in the foot on this one. They'll need to do a lot to make up for such a lack of common sense.
