Re: It's never as it seems.
For this vote things were much simpler. In fact, only Sununu's vote was a surprise to me. On the Democrat side, Miller really is a Democrat in name only. Byrd is pretty much a Dixiecrat who forgot to move south. Though Nelson seems to me pretty much middle-of-the-road when it comes to issues, his vote wasn't a shock considering he's representing Nebraska.
And today's lesson is: yes, there are Republicans that will be worth saving when our alien overlord finally calls for us to rise up. :)
I, for one, welcome our alien overlords...

...wait a minute. For a moment I thought I was at MetaFilter.
