The Grand Poobah Harry Reid named the Dem members of the Senate Committees today. So how do these guys (and gals) add up? Surprise - they don't. You know things are bad when Robert Byrd is the most conservative of all the committee leaders...
Foreign Relations: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware
ACLU score 92% NARAL score 100% LIFETIME American Conservative Union score 14
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (appropriately called HELP): Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Massachusetts
ACLU score 92% NARAL score 100% LIFETIME American Conservative Union score 3
Judiciary: Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont
ACLU score 100% NARAL score 75% LIFETIME American Conservative Union score 6
(doesn't bode well for getting judges out of committee)
Small Business: Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts
ACLU score 83% NARAL score 100% LIFETIME American Conservative Union score 5
(can someone please tell me what type of small business experience John Kerry has)
Intelligence: Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-West Virginia
ACLU score 70% NARAL score 75% LIFETIME American Conservative Union Score 10
You get the idea. ACLU issues - positive. NARAL issues - positive. Anything remotely resembling conservative - negative.
So one issue Republican voters - we now have a ZERO issue Congress. Thanks. Thanks a lot.
