Pelosi gets tough

... on liberal Democrats in the house, to keep fighting the war in Iraq. I'm sure President Bush appreciates her support.

At least the bill keeps Bush from starting a new war with Iran. Oh wait, she killed that too.

Gotta love those "San Francisco" values!


  1. The bill does call for withdrawal starting in Fall of 2008. It's not much, but it's something.

    It's a shame that the Democrats didn't keep the provision requiring permission before attacking Iran, but the provision technically violates the War Powers Act. However, the WPA is vague and a Constitutional showdown waiting to happen. I, for one, would have loved to see it.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.
