Dragging their belly on the floor of Hell.

How LOW will the GOP go?

Much lower than you might think. Really...

If you thought the GOP reached their low of lows with ____________ ( your favorite BushCo evil/low blow here), then you haven't seen this.

With thanx to the eagle eye's of the The Talent Show we get to see the GOP dragging their belly on the floor of Hell.

"L.A. Weekly has learned that, just a day after the actor's death, one or more Republican senators put a surprise hold on the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Act. The uncontroversial legislation had been expected to sail through committee and then the Senate as easily as it had the House of Representatives where it passed 418 to zero last week. Monday's action was beyond cruel; it was like opposing Mom and apple pie."
Reeve’s S. 1010 is identical to the already passed HR 1998, aimed at enhancing and furthering research into paralysis and improving rehabilitation and quality of life for those with spinal-cord injuries. Even so, one or more Senate GOPers made it a casualty of George W. Bush’s mission to confine stem-cell research to a paltry few and inadequate lines despite the fact that Reeve’s legislation had nothing to do with that issue. That’s worth repeating: The thespian’s bill had nothing to do with stem-cell research.

There is more here

Amazing eh?
