Whatever your views on the legislation itself, you can’t help but admire the planned obsequiousness demonstrated by the effective-anonymous vote. Such dignity. Such courage. Such leadership.
These invertebrates are up for office every two years. Remember their conduct on Election Day and reward them appropriately.
