Misplaced gratitude

Meant to blog this last week, but I was temporarily kidnapped by aliens and replaced by a pod person (I'm sure none of you noticed the difference). Anyway, Tom Tomorrow notes that sixteen Democratic senators voted in favor of the so-called "partial birth abortion" ban:

The vote was 64-33, with 3 abstaining. Which means that it was the 16 Senate Democrats who voted "yes" who put this thing over the top...Thanks, Democrats!

Yes, well, I seem to recall that this ridiculous and dishonest piece of grandstandinglegislation made it out of the Senate several times in the 1990s. Why hadn't it already been adopted as the law of the land?

Oh, that's right: Because we had a Democratic president to veto it every single time.

Thanks, Ralph!
