Yesterday, Senator Norm Coleman voted against the stem cell bill. Today, he’s hanging out with the Family Research Council.

Yesterday, Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN), who is facing a very tough re-election next year, voted against the real stem cell research bill. Instead, he offered the watered down, competing version. Coleman is sticking with the hard core theocrats. No surprise, then that Coleman is the featured guest for the Family Research Council’s “blogger briefing” conference call today about stem cells:

Every Thursday Family Research Council hosts a Bloggers’ Briefing conference call that gives bloggers the opportunity to communicate directly with politicians, policy makers, religious leaders, and others who set the agenda within our nation’s Capital. Tomorrow at 12:00 PM EST (9:00 AM PST / 10:00 AM MST / 11:00 AM CST) we’ll be talking with Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) about the embryonic stem cell bill currently being debated in the Senate.

Coleman chose to be a hero to the theocrats. He’s going to be a one-term Senator.
