Frank at Pine View Farm points to a piece in a Philly newspaper, utterly stupefying news on Rick Santorum’s opposition to a symbolic UN convention for disabled people, modeled after a similar US thing:

Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah), urged the Senate to reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities – a treaty negotiated during George W. Bush’s administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, and Syria.

The former presidential candidate pronounced “grave concerns” about the treaty, which forbids discrimination against people who have AIDS, are blind, use wheelchairs, and the like. “This is a direct assault on us,” he declared.

Lee, too, has “grave concerns” about the threat to U.S. sovereignty. “I will do everything I can to block its ratification …

To the demented Republican Party, the UN is always a looming menace to the country.

And I’ve never been able to figure out how anyone gloms onto the idea that an agency as demonstrably powerless as the UN could take the guns, or anything, off the nation that has the most powerful military in world history. It’s impossible to even approach trying to understand minds that believe such things. It’s a real chasm of mental, social and cultural division.

Nevertheless, here we are.

“He’ll be loyal to our land/There is hope for our nation, again … ,” they sang, months ago.
