Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

War resolution defeated

In case you’ve been busy today, watching football, or perhaps this movie, you might not have paid too much attention to this vote, derided by Democrats as a political stunt, though their apparent unwillingness to press Murtha’s position to its logical conclusion suggests a certain stuntsmanship on their part. I can’t improve upon the commentary offered here and here. I will note that Cynthia McKinney, still (much to my dismay) my representative, voted for the resolution.

You’d think a vote of that magnitude would shut them up for a while, but I’m betting it won’t. Basically, they couldn’t care less about America or whether or not we accomplish our goals in Iraq. Driving down Bush’s numbers and winning in 2006 and 2008 is all they have on their minds...power for the sake of power. Awful.
