30 Republican United States Senators vote against an amendment that would de-fund contractors who prevent their employees from suing if they are raped by co-workers, and they want Senator Franken to defend their vote?
Do I really think these 30 gutless Senators support rape? Of course not.
They support corporations and the military industrial complex over real people.
To his credit, Senator Franken hasn't gone Bachmann on the bit and appeared on every cable news show known to mankind to hurl accusations.
He's been quiet. He's been professional. He's been a United States Senator.
And importantly, he's right.
