VAWA Passes

The House of Representatives passed the (good) Senate version of the Violence Against Women Act yesterday in a 286 to 138 vote, with 87 Republicans joining all 199 Democrats in support of the bill.  I'm pretty excited about this (even though I doubt much programming will happen if the sequester does) because we are now seeing that some Republicans are going to go with public opinion and not with the Platform of Crazy.  Here's hoping that the whole "sense" thing catches on...
