My rep, Joe Donnelly actually voted for contempt, and then when I called his local office and his D.C. office neither of the nerds on the telephones had ANY defense of his actions, could not have cared less. Even when I asked if there was any explanation they could give me for a normally blue doggy moderate democrat to absolutely crater to the most crazed fringes of gundom, I got puzzled silence. Now, I get part of it, everyone’s afraid of the NRA, but Indiana really isn’t one of the hard core hunting or gun owners (Indiana’s 27th out of the 50) and Joe looks strong against Mourdock, at least for now. Feh, blue dog wuss. Video via TPM.
