    Ohh wow did not take them long to neoconize did it?

    I am sure that Beck will be calling them out on it on his show.

    Nothing about the Patriot act is a problem and the 3 specific items those 8 voted against are rather important. Once again 277 Dem, Republicans voted yes. This will pass easily.

    Of course not that would be like kissing a pig because it has one tiny clean spot on it.

    Standing up for individual rights is being a neocon? Thanks for letting me know that, I thought that neocons voted for the PATRIOT Act.

    Yes as did the vast majority of the new Tea Party caucus.
    Why I said it did not take them long to neoconize.
