Sherrod Brown Let Us Down

U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Avon) ostensibly wants my vote, but he sure isn't acting like it. Earlier today, Rep. Brown sided with the America-hating Republicans, voting in favor of H.R. 6166, the House version of George Bush's torture bill.

I'll still vote against Mike DeWine this November, but with much less enthusiasm than before. The $50 I had intended to send to Rep. Brown's campaign will go to a more worthy Democrat. It's too bad Lisa Renee of Liberal Common Sense is no longer selling her "F*** Sherrod but I'll still vote for him" merchandise.

Progressives need to be prgamatic enough to understand the politics in Ohio and the one point lead Brown has in the polls. Brown's vote was not the deciding vote and to win this race he just removed a major issues the Repugs were ready to bury him with. I don't like the vote either. But it's been a long time since Glenn adn Metzenabaum graced the halls of the Senate and if Brown's 95% voting record on progressive issues isn't enough for us, then we don't undertand politcs.
