One of the most shame-filled moments of Michael Moore’s Farenheit 911 came when no Senator stood up in support of the Congressional Black Caucas’s challenge of the Electoral College vote in 2000. It looks like history is getting ready to repeat itself. According to the Detroit Free Press, “it is virtually certain numerous members of the Congressional Black Caucus will challenge that vote. But the assent of a Senator is required for the challenge to go forward, and thus far none has definitively confirmed.”

What the hell??!! If the shoe was on the other foot, do you think for a minute the Republicans wouldn’t trample each other just for the opportunity to embarass the President? They held the country hostage and brought the government to a grinding halt for months just so they could flash their mugs on TV and embarass Bill Clinton. Their morals are corrupt but their methods are sound. Will someone in the Democratic Party please grow a set?
