For a Democrat, she seemed to have a pretty good record on civil rights and foreign policy, until I started further reading down the list. She's just another tyrant in chief.
- Is the co-sponsor of PIPA. Yes, THAT PIPA
- Voted to DESTROY FISA court via (typically) ironically named "Protect America Act"
- Of course, voted like a dutiful party hack FOR oBomBa(S)CARE
- Is HATED by Justin Bieber! LOL Hey when the Beebs wants you locked up, you're like OMG like seriously on the wrong side, dude(tte)!
- Is indicative of the typical sheeple electorate; for all that, she's a popular statist, with a STATEWIDE approval at 67%, by Rasmussen, you know, the RINO pollster-in-chief?? as of March 12, 2010. Granted, the poll was taken 2 years ago, and PIPA vote was more recent, so who knows where she stands now, even amongst Dems?
