It is about damn time!
The House passed the Wellstone parity legislation 376 to 47. A Bluestem Prairie has nice coverage of the story. As Ollie Ox pointed out, the only member of the Minnesota delegation to vote against this important piece of legislation was Rep. Michelle Bachman. Maybe if there was an amendment allowing drilling for oil in ANWR she could have supported it.
It has been a long while since I featured a Big Dooker of The Week and I really have other things I could be doing right now, but Rep. Bachmann has outdone herself this week with this vote and her attempts to link drilling for oil in ANWR to the Wall Street bailout legislation.
Congratulations Michelle, you are our Big Dooker of The Week.
Peace & solidarity,
