HERE'S HOW YOU KNOW YOU'RE A DEMOCRAT:

House Passes Bill Barring Interstate Transport of Pet Primates (Avery Palmer, 2/24/09, CQ)

The House passed legislation Tuesday that would prohibit the interstate shipment of pet monkeys and other primates, over Republican complaints that the bill is a waste of time.

The vote on the bill (HR 80) was 323-95.


You think it's awful to take a flippin' monkey over a state line but have no problem with transporting a minor over that line to abort her baby. Which raises the question of whether there's an exception for pregnant chimps....
