I looked in vain for this story on DU. What happened to it?
Its like an army of 'unrec'ers' descended on DU.
You just gotta wonder, because DUers ought to be a little pissed about
Wilson's light treatment. But whats even more unbelievable is 12 Dems
voted against the motion to 'disapprove' his 'breach of decorum'.

here's the vote http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll699.xml
can anyone pick out the 12 democrats who voted nay?
