Brown and Portman: A tale of two senators

As we continue to plumb the depths of fear among Tea Party-NRA-bullied Republicans, you'll find no better contrast than in your Ohio.

Sen.  Sherrod Brown, a liberal Democrat, has cast the Tea Party and the NRA to the winds, twice winning his U.S.Senate seat against conservative Republicans - then incumbent Sen. Mike DeWine and again against Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, who ran with King Midas, Karl Rove and Wayne LaPierre at this back.

Now we turn to Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman, among the most fearful of a Tea Party challenge, who joined the cavemen in the Senate in voting against the background check bill.

Now I ask you , on a scale of one to ten, where do you rank each of these guys on profiles in courage facing the same Ohio voters?

I personally support background checks, but the idea that it is cowardly for anyone to vote against them is ridiculous. How is it cowardly to vote against a bill that is supported by 90% of the public? Going against popular will doesn't show cowardice it shows courage.

The easy thing to do is whatever is most politically expedient.

Sorry, but it looks like they ignored the 90% and voted for the interests of their paymasters/donors. What, again!?
