Response to Drunken Irishman (Original post)

47. They didn't even have to "compromise".

The tally was 68-32, so neither Senator was necessary for passage. They could have easily stood on principle, thereby satisfying the personality-cultist purity patrol, but they didn't.

That won't stop the rationalizing, of course, but it does provide excellent grist for ridicule.
