One Victory And One Loss Today

As I noted earlier, it was a mixed day. The repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” passed with eight Republican Senators joining the Democrats. Unfortunately there weren’t enough votes to get cloture on a GOP filibuster on the DREAM Act, with some Democrats joining the Republicans. It is hard to come up with a rational argument against passing the DREAM Act as it only gives a path towards citizenship to those brought into the country as minors without intending to break the law. The most likely explanation I can come up with is that the Republican Party is dominated by bigots who hate people who look like foreigners. Conservatives act like victims when called bigots, and yet they support so many policies which are based upon bigotry.
