The Chicken Doves
Quietly, while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been inspiring Democrats everywhere with their rolling bitchfest, congressional superduo Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have completed one of the most awesome political collapses since Neville Chamberlain. At long last, the Democratic leaders of Congress have publicly surrendered on the Iraq War, just one year after being swept into power with a firm mandate to end it.

Solidifying his reputation as one of the biggest pussies in U.S. political history, Reid explained his decision to refocus his party's energies on topics other than ending the war by saying he just couldn't fit Iraq into his busy schedule. "We have the presidential election," Reid said recently. "Our time is really squeezed."

Oh, and speaking of the turncoat democrats, Attorney General Michael Mukasey Says Torture Has Always Been Legal

Bayh(D-IN), Yea
Carper (D-DE), Yea
Feinstein (D-CA), Yea
Landrieu (D-LA), Yea
Nelson (D-NE), Yea
Schumer (D-NY), Yea

Uncle Joe
Lieberman (ID-CT), Yea

Before one slams the Bushies, it's fair to remember that this person is there because six Democrats (plus Uncle Joe) voted for him. An actual political party, instead of the Democrats, would have sent this man home. Mukasey is one of the many ,many cases (close to 100% of the time) when congressional Democrats have happily rolled over hoping for their master, George W, to rub their bellies.

He was just a nominee. Congress is, allegedly, in the hands of the opposition. That's what oppositions do, they shoot down nominess such as this one. Instead, he's AG. And you cannot even blame the Supremes like in 2000. Suck it up, he's there doing this kind of sub-banana republic stuff because the Democrats sent him there. He's there to cover Bush family crimes as well as the to hold the fort so the Democrats can have the chance do even more crimes, picking up where Bush leaves off.

Autopsy reports reveal homicides of detainees in U.S. custody

This is the sort of power play common to the US government. One side says, "we're investigating you"; the other side says, "you can't, I won't submit to questions". Then the first side says, "Oh yeah? Here's a subpoena, bitches". And the other side says, "We don't recognize your authoritay". Then everyone makes for the nearest news show to bitch about the other side; and then, you guessed it, it's backslapping and drinks for everyone as they all meet in Martha's Vineyard.

Worse to come, so says Dante..
