Memo to McCain, Graham, Kyl, and every other lying sack of crap Republican Senator

Why do Republicans hate facts?  Because they are never on the same side.  For the last two weeks all I have heard is one Republican after another (exceptions include Lugar, Brown Isakson, Cochran, Corker, Bennett, Snowe, and Collins) go on about how the new START Treaty is being rammed down their throats during the lame duck session.  Well facts are stubborn things.  The excerpt below is pulled from the US Senate Records for the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.  You will notice the dates and and frequency of hearings.  Well Senators Kyl, McCain, Graham, and McConnell, I quote your fellow Republidick from the House, Joe Wilson (SC): "You Lie!".
