Gutless, feckless Beltway Dems (yes, they still exist) 

Here are the Dems who voted against cloture, thereby greasing the skids for the Loansharking Protection and Advocacy Act (via TPM:

Senators Tom Carper (D-Delaware), Joe Biden (D-Delaware), Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) and Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) all voted for cloture. Long-time fence-sitters Senators Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) also got in the act, as did someone we thought was a Consumer Champion: Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL).

You rememnber this one? The one where your grandmother loses her house to pay for the medical bills, while the rich fucks shelter their mansions in Florida? Of course you do. But, oh yeah, if you firebomb an abortion clinic, and declare bankruptcy to avoid the fines, no problemo!

Say, does MBNA let any of its cards be used to pay for abortions? That would make them baby killers too, wouldn't it? Especially after they collect the interest, right? Hey, just asking (and a tip of the ol' Corrente hat to chica toxic).

(farmer update): Tinfoil Hat Boy (in comments) points out some names missing from the list above.

Byrd (D-WV)
Conrad (D-ND)
Kohl (D-WI)
Lieberman (D-CT)
Pryor (D-AR)
Salazar (D-CO)
Stabenow (D-MI)
