After more than a year of obstruction, Senate Republicans finally let the state Dream Act to the floor for a vote today, where it of course overwhelmingly passed by a 35-10 margin. And Republicans are obviously so proud of themselves for extending college financial aid to hundreds of brown children, that they passed the state Dream Act on a Friday afternoon, two days before the Super Bowl.

I mean, if I were trying to bury some news, I'd release it this afternoon. Not sure what this says about how Republicans think their constituents might greet the news, but hmmm.
