Bogus Vote Alert

The Republicans are pulling out all the stops to discredit John Kerry. Since they control Congress they can call votes at any hour of the day or night. It seems the latest tactic is to wait till Kerry is out of Washington and then engineer some pop vote that they hope will embarrass him.

The latest is a Senate vote on an amendment to extend Unemployment Benefits by 13 weeks. This vote had been held up for months by the Republicans. With Kerry safely out of town, they suddenly scheduled a vote.

Anyone familiar with the Republican opposition to extending unemployment Benefits -- time and time again -- can only laugh at this little bit of theater.
