Fit to be slaves To return to the abject servility of the legislative branch in our own day, I would like to point out that, in addition to the Senate's shameful unanimous vote to condemn the pledge of allegiance ruling, precisely three members of the House voiced any objection to the circus there: Scott [VA], Conyers[MI], and Blumenauer [OR], who said: "Mr. Speaker, at a time when meaningful debate is at a minimum in this Congress, it is embarrassing that this resolution has been brought to the floor in this manner.... I would hope we would allow this decision to work its way through the judicial process rather than engage in political grandstanding. I refuse to dignify this trivialization of the legislative process and I vote 'present'" [148 Cong. Rec. H4125-01, 2002 WL 1398890].
