A good friend of mine sent me an email in response to my recent post on the Senate State Affairs Committee's recent rejection of the "Nullification" Bill. Entitled "Seriously", he asked me in the email if I REALLY supported the nullifying movement. My response to him was simple. Those State Senators who quietly led Tea Party members across Idaho (and specifically in their districts) to believe that they REALLY wanted the Tea Party support at election time, were ultimately disingenuous. Here's why: when THE vote of votes (Nullification) came up to allow the full Senate to cast a vote (up or down - but to go on record re the Tea Party's major project), they killed the bill - protecting other Senators from having to publicly vote on the issue. It's called "providing cover"... and it stinks/Dennis Mansfield. More here. And Idaho Conservative Blogger's viewpoint here.

Question: Will the state senators who voted to kill nullification in the Senate State Affairs Committee be road-kill when they face re-election in 2012?
