Ode To The Lame GOP Gang Of Eleven (Updated)
Please forgive me for not being all that impressed with the Republican Gang of Eleven, who supposedly hammered George Bush about Iraq and had the “most unvarnished conversation they’ve ever had with the president.” And Tim Russert’s breathless reports about this so-called “defining pivotal moment” in the Iraq debate (and his media echo chamber) merely enable these eleven endangered Republicans to dupe their constituents into believing that they’re finally doing something about the war in Iraq.
All eleven voted with the President on the Iraq war spending bill and the redeployment bill that came before Congress this week. So woopdidoo! And a limerick too:
