From The Hill; a senator we wouldn’t trust enough to be president, but certainly understand his participation in conspiring for defeat, John Kerry said, “he believes more than 60 senators would vote for a change in the Iraq strategy if they were allowed to vote their conscience on a measure to redeploy U.S. troops.”
Interestingly, two Republicans in support of the effort to support the enemy were in attendance when JFK2not made the remarks. Olympia Snowe, Republican from the North Eastern state of

Ain't that the issue in a nutshell?
Putting on their jammies and making believe they are working at night as they make believe during the day; CNN reports:

Because we all know the Republicans don’t want them home, ever.
Following the lead of their “leader,” the party playing into the hands of our enemies have decided to pull an all-nighter as a bit of political theatrics of their own; at least this is this “impression” the unbiased reporting of CNN would like us to believe.

In addition, Democratic senators “are being encouraged to schedule interviews on radio, television and the Internet.” All the better to cover the homefront for
Pretty good, almost eight months in and lacking accomplishment Reid and his Rosies work as aggressively as they should in helping their nation see this threat through, but instead devote their energy in employing the very tactics their allies, that are killing Iraqis and our soldiers need to add a notch to the neutering of the United States of America.
