(1) NRO's blog is quite good.
(2) The Republicans stepped up and drop-kicked the Democrats right through the goal posts on Friday by calling a vote on a resolution to pull out of Iraq. The bill was thunderingly defeated 403 to 3, as intended. Here's the AP's take:
"Republicans hoped to place Democrats in an unappealing position -- either supporting a withdrawal that critics said would be precipitous or opposing it and angering voters who want an end to the conflict."
I thought calling the vote was a totally sweet move by the Republican leadership, and wish Democrats would do more things like it. Nancy Pelosi, D-Hypocrite, disagreed and called it "a disgrace." Ha. Several Democrats called it a "political stunt." REALLY? Thanks for the incisive analysis--I couldn't tell.
Read about it here, here or here.
