View Diary: Why I STILL will NOT vote for Lincoln (57 comments)

  •  Lincoln irritates me but Pryor's vote (4+ / 0-)

    befuddles me. She probably voted that way so Boozman wouldn't use it against her in the campaign. Pryor has no excuse.

    That said, if she's within striking distance I'll probably vote for her to avoid Boozman but if she's still lagging by ten points or more I'll go Green too.

    I detest the woman.

    •  Blanche is losing and she knows it. (8+ / 0-)

      Her vote wasn't about trying to keep her seat.

      It really seemed to be just a pure bit of nasty spite intended to make the GoP look more reasonable and to try to get some of that homophobic GOP muck on the Democratic Party.

      She's as petulant as Lieberman, and less popular.

    •  Pryor's vote is probably cover for Lincoln (5+ / 0-)

      He did that with the Reconciliation bill when his vote didn't matter so that he could give her political cover during her primary battle with Halter.

      My guess is that if his vote was all or nothing, he would have voted for it but alas, 56 votes means nothing these days.

      Kill the filibuster.

        They switched at the end, after it was evident that no GOP would cross over. He probably did want to give her cover.
