  •  Can anyone explain this logic? (0+ / 0-)

    If "Over 70 percent of the voters in Pryor's own state support the measure, rendering Pryor's weak-kneed vote all the more ridiculous"

    then why would Pryor vote against the bill "that is only controversial in the minds of a small fraction of people—most of them conspiracy cranks"?

    This makes about as much sense as the Giffords opinion piece that stated gun control legislation had overwhelming public support but that cowardly politicians voted against it based on getting re-elected.

    If the public supports something wouldn't voting for it be the politically expedient thing to do?
