The list is up at Daily Kos.

Gutless Democrats saying Aye:
Tom Carper (Del.)
Tim Johnson (S.D.)
Mary Landrieu (La.)
Frank Lautenberg (N.J.)
Bob Menendez (N.J)
Bill Nelson (Fla.)
Ben Nelson (Neb.)
Pryor (Ark.)
Jay Rockefeller (W. Va.)
Ken Salazar (Co.)
Debbie Stabenow (Mich.)

Gutless Connecticut for Liebermans saying Aye:
Joe Lieberman (Conn.)

The only real surprises to me in the list are Lautenberg and Stabenow.

It’s unclear according to this DK poster as to whether the bill even prohibits rape and sodomy as an interrogation tactic. Certainly there’s nothing prohibitting the sustained chaining of prisoners naked with panties over their heads, but that’s not really sexual violence, is it?

The bill also clears up most of the prior violations.

Thing is, I don’t think this will even rate as a campaign issue. We’ve managed to hehumanize the enemy, and nobody thinks it could happen to anyone “innocent.” If it happens to a prisoner he or she must be guilty of something, right?
