Who supports the Arabs?


I was checking out Project Vote Smart's website tonight, looking at the special interest group ratings of various politicians. I came across the 2004 Arab-American Institute ratings. Intrigued, I copied the data into Excel. Here's what I came up with:

House of Representatives Average Ratings
Democrats: 35.3
Republicans: 3.2

Senate Average Ratings
Democrats: 51.4
Republicans: 13.4

How did our state's representatives and senators do on the Arab American test?

Nussle 0
Leach 33 (RINO!)
Boswell 33
Latham 0
King -5 (just kidding, 0)
Grassley 0
Harkin 67

Scores were based upon the voting records of the reps and senators on certain issues, including accountability for Syria and Saudi Arabia, Immigration, support for an Israel-Palestine wall, Hate Crimes, and Civil Liberties in regards to FISA.

Of our delegation, Steve King got the most "negative" ratings, 4 out of 7.

Why must you hate, Bgunzy?

Arabs are real people too. Albeit, people who strap explosives to themselves and their children and blow up innocent people, but really it that so wrong?

Yo, I'm no playa hater. I just wanted to show which party has more "sympathy" with the Arab American Institute.

The D's appear to be lovers, not fighters.
