    Frantic GOP fringe turns back on Bob Dole and the Persons with Disabilities convention.

    But the Senate's failure to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was nevertheless remarkable — for what it said about the state of domestic politics. Despite GOP efforts to recalibrate after last month's election losses, the treaty vote reflected the continuing influence of a fringe that gets frantic about anything involving the United Nations.

    By walking away from the treaty, the U.S. loses a chance to champion the principles of non-discrimination overseas. And the Senate looks captive to fringe members peddling half-baked ideas about the U.N.

    THE KOCH BROS STRIKE AGAIN. The American Heritage Foundation ordered their Republican flunkies in the Senate to vote down the treaty.
