The Republicans who voted against Sotomayor

Here is the list:

Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.)
Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah)
Sen. Charles Grassley (Iowa)
Sen. Jon Kyl (Ariz.)
Sen. John Cornyn (Texas)
Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.)
Sen. John Barrasso (Wyo.)
Sen. Robert Bennett (Utah)
Sen. Sam Brownback (Kan.)
Sen. Richard Burr (N.C.)
Sen. Jim Bunning (Ky.)
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (Ga.)
Sen. Thad Cochran (Miss.)
Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.)
Sen. Mike Crapo (Idaho)
Sen. Jim DeMint (S.C.)
Sen. John Ensign (Nev.)
Sen. Mike Enzi (Wyo.)
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (Tex.)
Sen. James Inhofe (Okla.)
Sen. Johnny Isakson (Ga.)
Sen. Mike Johanns (Neb.)
Sen. John McCain (Ariz.)
Sen. Mitch McConnell (Ky.)
Sen. James Risch (Idaho)
Sen. Pat Roberts (Kan.)
Sen. Richard Shelby (Ala.)
Sen. John Thune (S.D.)
Sen. David Vitter (La.)
Sen. Roger Wicker (Miss.)
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)

So lets look at the state my state breakdown:

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, ,Utah and Wyoming. A total of 21 states.

Interestingly the states that were involved with the confederate side of the civil war overlay nicely on this group. Those in both lists are highlighted in bold.

Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia

Interesting huh? I’m thinking we should build a temporary wall around the confederate states, one that goes up for 4,000 feet, the other a couple thousand feet into the ground. Make sure we put a no-fly zone up. Leave it up until they can leave their racist asses behind and stop electing racist Republicans to office. Once we see improvement (Say around 20 or 30 years) we’ll remove the wall.

As to the western states, they should be ashamed of themselves. But then the expansion westward, tended to go on in the southern half so that explains Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, et al.
