In a non-bind

(EDIT. -- I'm pretty horrible at political rants. In order to do a really good rant, you have to actually care about the subject you're ranting on. Still, since evolution is still on hiatus, I feel I should gripe about something political and this seems like a good controversial topic.)

The do-nothing Democratic congress continues to do nothing and brag about it.

The latest example is this so-called legislation that the Democratic peacocks are promoting as a rejection of President Bush's proposal to increase troop levels in Iraq.

Oh, it would be all well and good if they actually were rejection the president's proposal. 22,000 troops may or may not make a difference in Iraq, but as Jerry Seinfeld would say, if it doesn't work that's one big matzah ball hanging out there.

But of course the "legislation" in question isn't really a rejection at all.

Senator-with-a-porn-star-name Dick Lugar almost hit the nail on the head when he said
"It is unclear to me how passing a nonbinding resolution that the president has already said he will ignore will contribute to any improvement or modification of our Iraq policy."
What Lugar may know but didn't mention is that improving or modifying the Iraq policy isn't the goal of the Democrats. On the contrary, the goal of the Democrats is to do nothing and make sure the policy doesn't change, but still appear as if they are attempting to change the policy.

As I pointed out last November, despite what they say the hypocritical Democrats need the war in Iraq to continue, and to fail, in order for Hillary and/or Barak to have a chance of winning the presidency in a couple of years.

  1. Well, see, this is why you're going to hell, and why I hate you more than the devil himself.


    OK, confession: I haven't even read your post yet. Just the first graf where you said you were going to post something political. I have no idea if what followed was liberal or conservative -- I just know that this is the kind of reception that greets political postings in the blogosphere. I thought somebody needed to get to work thickening your skin.
