Testing

It was a choice between a front page New York Times article on an eco-friendly potato chip plant (no, seriously, front page. And linked to climate change, too!) or the latest House surrender in Iraq and to Muslim extremists legislation. The Surrender Monkey is kinda bored, lately, and begged to be given a forum prior to Friday. The interesting thing is, this kind of retreat and defeat legislation has become so normal, that the story is considered to be "other news" by the Gray Lady nowadays

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14 — The House on Wednesday approved $50 billion of the nearly $200 billion that President Bush had requested for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan but attached many strings to the measure, virtually guaranteeing that Senate Republicans would block it. The strings included a requirement that troop withdrawals begin within 30 days, a narrowing of the mission to focus on counterterrorism and on training Iraqi security forces, and a goal of full withdrawal by mid-December 2008. The bill would also require all American personnel, including C.I.A.operatives, to follow Army Field Manual rules on torture, among them a ban on waterboarding, an interrogation technique that simulates drowning without causing death.

Does Al Qaeda and the other Muslim extremist groups have a registered lobbying group? I guess MoveOn, the ACLU, and a few others count, but, the way the Democrats keep doing this, and the language, such as making nice nice to know terrorists in captivity, is over the top, making me consider the possibility that there is actually a lobbying group, pumping lots of money in to Dem coffers. Or, it could be that the Democrats are just so invested in defeat in Iraq and their BDS, that they just do not care what the outcomes of such legislation would be.  then the Iraqi government this year, and it took quite 4 years from the end of the American Revolution to get the Constitution adopted in 1787. It was not fully ratified till May 29, 1790. Washington did not even take office as president till 1789, 6 years after the end of the Revolution. Let’s not forget, though

But in pushing for a vote on Wednesday on the Orderly and Responsible Iraq Redeployment Appropriations Act, Democrats sought to remind constituents of their continuing opposition to the war.

In other words, even the NY Times understands that this was just another political stunt. Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's Oasis Image hosting by Photobucket Do you have an interesting post? Well, go ahead and leave a trackback, with a reciprical link back to me. Otherwise, no monkey poop for you!
