Republicans Sink to New Low: With Former Sen. Leader Bob Dole, 89, a Disabled WWII Vet, in the Chamber, GOP Senators Vote Down U.N. Treaty on Disabled He Was There to Support

Senate Republicans put their paranoia about the United Nations ahead of party loyalty, common sense and, especially, sanity yesterday — and insulted their former leader and their party’s 1996 presidential nominee, disabled World War II veteran Bob Dole to his face — when they voted down a U.N. treaty on disabilities Dole supports while he was on the Senate floor with them yesterday.
