Everybody’s reporting that the Democrats have dropped withdrawal dates from the Iraq war funding bill. If this is really true, Rachel Maddow says she’ll go insane, and so will I:
Democrats, Heal Thy Selves! (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
The Dems disappoint once again,
Caving in to Dub’s warmong’ring yen.
Timeline’s gone from the bill.
Checks on Bush? Nothing! Nil!
Bush says, “Heel!” and the Dems reply, “When?”
UPDATE: If you’re mad at Congress too, you can Take the Iraq Vote Pledge here, and it will be sent to your representatives. It reads:
I pledge to vote against every Senator and Representative who approves funding to continue the disastrous Iraq War.
We have already given far too much of our blood and treasure – and killed far too many Iraqis – for a war based on lies. We are now occupying a hostile nation divided by civil war for the benefit of military contractors and Big Oil.
The only way to support our troops is to bring them home NOW, and no funds should be used for any other purpose. If Congress fails to bring our troops home, I will do everything I can – and urge everyone I know – to defeat pro-war Senators and Representatives, both in my party’s primary elections and in the November general election.
