The Shameful 38
Today is Wednesday, 5 December 2012.

Mozart died on this date in 1791.

Monet died on this date in 1926.

Dave Brubeck died today.
Call me mean-spirited if you wish, but I can’t help but hope that the 38 U.S. senators who voted yesterday against ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities, causing it to fail, become themselves disabled, as soon and as debilitatingly as possible.
Their reasons were basically the same old dreck we’ve heard since the U.N. was founded:  it’s a Jew …. wait, a Commie … wait, an Islamic plot to enslave Americans under a One World Dictatorship.  Or perhaps it’s a plot of persons with disabilities.
Senator Harry Reid (D, NV):  “It is a sad day when we cannot pass a treaty that simply brings the world up to the American standard for protecting people with disabilities because the Republican Party is in thrall to extremists and ideologues.”
The shameful 38 are certainly and fatally morally disabled.
