Yawn. The platitudinous vacancy of Cole's patronizing (see, we can use big words too) analysis is comical. First, it was not Noem who authored up the provision in the House version of VAWA, it was Issa and Tom Cole. Second, I would double-check Bono Mack's "sterling history of attention" with some actual Indians from her district - they have differed with her on such critical issues as Cobell, VAWA, and land conservation. She joined hundreds of others lawmakers in seeking a legislative correction to Carcieri - that was not a difficult one there. Which bills has she "embraced" (and what does that mean legislatively anyway?) that are "structured around" (another ?) maintaining funding for Indian-related causes? That's flowery, vague wording to cover up an empty record.
