(From TWD)

It's the side of the story you know you won't hear on the networks. It's the side of the story that won't be placed in the newspapers.

There won't be any hard questions to the 18 other nutcases who proudly joined "Senator Elevator Tough S---" tonight in giving multiple middle fingers to the jobless. Once the bill passes, we'll just forget about those who voted against such a thing and move on.

Some thought in me, however, says that just shouldn't happen simply because the vote passed and passed so easily.

So without further ado, if you didn't look at the roll call or watch C-Span 2, here are the rest of those from the insane party who hate the downtrodden in their nation so much that they would vote against this.  

Lamar Alexander, John Barasso, Bob Bennett, Richard Burr, Tom Coburn, John Cornyn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign, Mike Enzi, Judd "Deficit Peacock Turkey" Gregg, Orrin Hatch, Mike Johanns, Jeff Sessions, John Thune, James Risch, Mike Crapo and your Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell.

Hell, even Bunning defender Jon Kyl, John McForget, and original "one man Senate hostage taker" Rich Shelby voted for the bill.

So from me, congratulations to all you classy Senators who hate the jobless. But hey, you'll still be heroes to the Right like Bunning was. And I'm sure that comprehensive D-bag that is the editor at that deplorable site will still ask, "Why does Harry Reid hate the unemployed?"

The message of how you voted against helping your fellow desperate citizens won't be uttered (or even worse, registered) in the ears of your devout insane loyalists or their nutty comedian network owned by Murdoch. Instead, they'll make sure felicitations for your bravery will be celebrated because it's cool in the minds of your fans to support against their own interests.

Especially when this maybe one of the few pieces that talks extensively about who really loathes those in "Jobless hell" right now.

(From TWD, Goodnight to you all and thanks for even reading.)

Update: The praise continues:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
