More funny stuff in the Senate by Republicans.

In a departure, most Senate Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues in voting to allow debate on a new resolution aimed at winding down U.S. participation in the Iraq war. The vote is a new stance for Senate Republicans, who have twice blocked resolutions on an Iraq withdrawal that were opposed by the White House.

But the measure, which sets March 31, 2008, as the date by which all U.S. troops must be withdrawn, is unlikely to have enough bipartisan support to pass.

It would also require redeployment of forces in Iraq within four months of passage.

Back to their dirty tricks. They're only doing this to piss of Lieberman and get him to leave the Democrat party, so they can take back the Senate.

 

Hey, if there is a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, anything is possible. Right?

Not a bad idea at all to have both parties put their views up and make a decision. I'm hopeful that moderate Dem's can begin to make their voices heard in this debate. God knows there is room in the center for a few reasonable Democrat voices while Hillary chases the moveon.org wing of the party. Those 180 turns are a beotch.....
