The proposal failed yesterday, to my great relief, but I'm disappointed in both Georgia senators voting for such, and intend to write and tell them so.

streamweaver made a useful post listing every senator and the way they voted, so you can check your own, but for those in Georgia who are interested in writing to communicate their feelings:

Senator Zell Bryan Miller
Next election: 2004

Washington DC Address
257 Dirksen Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510-1006
Phone: 202-224-3643
Fax: 202-228-2090

District Address - Atlanta
100 Colony Square, Suite 300
1175 Peachtree Street, Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30361
Phone: 404-347-2202
Fax: 404-347-2243

Senator Saxby Chambliss
Next election: 2008

Washington DC Address
416 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Phone: 202-224-3521
Fax: 202-224-0103

District Address - Atlanta
100 Galleria Parkway, Suite 1340
Atlanta, GA 30339
Phone: 770-763-9090
Fax: 770-226-8633

I know Zell's known for being an atypical Democrat, but I still expected better of him on this. I didn't expect much of Chambliss, but I'm embarrassed that he considers himself an Episcopalian. We 'piskies are generally more tolerant folks.

I swear, some of our legislators need a swift kick in the "separation of church and state" areas of their anatomy.

thanks for the info. Although I probably could have guessed both votes from my state (Dole - R voted yes and good old Edwards abstained.)

Argggghhhhhhh!!! First of all, it's a goddamn non-issue, as you pointed out, seperation of church and state. Outside of religion, there is not one reason for this to even come up.

My contempt for the Democratic party knows no bounds at this point. Kerry and Edwards are two of the biggest fuckups to ever run for President. Did you catch the Sixty Minutes interview with those two? I would have smacked the taste right out of their mouths if I had been interviewing them. "Come on, now you're playing around." No dickhead, answer the fucking question. At this point, the Democratic party is rubbing our faces in the fact that they can put anyone up for election, and count on a hatred for Bush to possibly win. Their disdain for their own constituents has never been spelled out clearer. If anyone except for Bush was in office, those two would probably face the biggest landslide ever, and I'm not so sure at this point it's going to be enough to get Bush out. I cannot stand that smug dickhead Bush, but after watching those two, if they don't win, I'm still going to be happy just to see the look on their's and the party's leaderships faces.

It seriously makes me want to scream.

Huh?
You expected more of Zell? Why? Have you heard him lately?

Re: Huh?
Well, it was more of a "hope springs eternal" sort of thing, really. I know he considers himself a "conservative Democrat", as per the title of his book, but if he's just going to act completely conservative, then I don't get why he considers himself a Democrat at all.
