#RandiRhodes @RandiRadio blog: Gang of Cowards

The Senate responded to the slaughter of children at Newtown with a shrug of their shoulders. Worse, even—they didn’t just shrug their shoulders, they brushed the memories of those murdered children off their shoulders like so much annoying dandruff. The Senate voted 54 to 46 to kill the compromise bill on background checks. And of course, the majority of 54 voted FOR the bill, but it wasn’t enough under Senate filibuster rules. But this is one case where what they did was so much worse even than how they did it. Hopefully this vote will end up costing some of these Senators their jobs, because it will most certainly cost some of you your children.

As the Senate voted down the background check bill, Tucson shooting survivor Patricia Maisch shouted “Shame on you!” I would like to see that entered into the Congressional Record—it’s the best summation of the proceedings that there is.

A radio talk show host in Minneapolis has told the families of the Newtown victims they can “go to Hell.” If people like that exist, I suspect we may already be in Hell. Bob Davis told parents of slain children” I’m sorry that you suffered a tragedy. But you know what? Deal with it and don’t force me to lose my liberty which is a greater tragedy than your loss.” Got that? Having to drive 30 miles to town trumps having a child murdered. And let’s face it—this guy doesn’t even live 30 miles from town.

The man arrested in the ricin-mailing case is an Elvis impersonator who thinks there’s a conspiracy involving the sale of body parts. This is an Elvis impersonator who had even weirder ideas than Elvis did at his most addled. Suspect Kevin Curtis has numerous online postings ranting about what he thought was a giant conspiracy to sell human body parts. Oddly, my first question is “How did Alex Jones miss this one?” Curtis writes that he discovered the conspiracy while working at a hospital. He found “a refrigerator full of dismembered body parts & organs wrapped in plastic.” OK, that’s not really that weird in a hospital. If he had found that at—say—a Pizza Hut, then he should worry.
