Until these Senators are prepared to vote against continued funding for the war—and none of them are now—Bush and Cheney can go on their bloody way. -Matthew Rothschild, The Progressive Magazine, July 5
We saw what happened yesterday-Mitch McConnell continues to hold the country hostage to the now-delusional George Bush, who is beginning to remind one of Dreyfus ("No crater? But I want a crater! I want wreckage, twisted metal! Something the world will not forget!") playing the organ in The Pink Panther Strikes Again. This is no longer a Bush war-this is now a fully Republican war. The Congress now has the power to hold the president accountable for this nightmarish mess, but in true partisan fashion they opt not to...and the country will remember, Mr. McConnell (the state of Maine will also remember the mind-numbing lack of leadership Susan Collins has shown on this issue).
It's time to put your money where your mouth is, guys. Defund this war.
