And let them die in Iraq!
That should be the new slogan of the GOP. They did another filibuster on Boxer's resolution condemning any ad against military people (past or present), yet the measure condemning MoveOn's ad passed.
Considering the GOP blocks any measure that would help the troops as a whole, or even give them an end in sight, they have given another "fuck the troops". The only troops that they care about are ones who will bow down to their political belief. What is it we are fighting for again? It sure as hell isn't freedom!
I can understand the Democrats voting for this. Negative attack ads is what the Republicans do, and they sure will go after every Democrat that voted no. However, it is time for Harry Reid to grow some balls. Instead of allowing these "procedural" filibusters on Iraq, force the GOP to full filibusters. Yeah it will slow Senate down, but what the hell is getting done now? Let's have some multi-day filibusters go one to show all the American people that the Republicans care nothing about democracy. Why would they filibuster anyways? Bush would just veto it, then the Republicans can sit back and not look like obstructionists.
Stop being a pussy Harry!
