Eight Senators Show Their Stripes - Backing The Batterers

On Monday, eight U.S. Senators voted against considering the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).  All of the women in the Senate (with the exception of Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE), which tells us all we really need to know about her, doesn't it?) co-sponsored this legislation.

Because Republican women know about getting beaten and raped, too.

The senators (I keep trying to type another word, but it's senators) who voted against moving forward to debate the re-authorization of VAWA, which Congress allowed to expire before the end of 2012, are:

Ted Cruz (R-TX) (I told you what he was, Mamas - now we have to get him out of office)
Mike Lee (R-UT)
Tim Scott (R-SC)
Marco Rubio (R-FL) (Please take note, my Catholic, Republican friends - he is not a good man)
Mike Johanns (R-NE)
Rand Paul (R-KY) (Not a good man - see above)
Pat Roberts (R-KS) (Not a good man)
James Risch (R-ID). 

The re-authorization is expected to eventually pass the Senate (what's a few more dead moms while we wait?) but face a harder time in the House, where there are more batterer-lovers and rapist-lovers, apparently.
