From Daily Kos, concerning John Warner waffling

Man, it's just got to be seeping out of this guy's ears at this point, because those troops were coming home anyway:

But the 13th MEU, a support unit that has been in Iraq on its current tour for about three months, was already scheduled to return home from Iraq on Nov. 17. Their new date of arrival under the drawdown plan? Still Nov. 17.

Senator John Warner is buying his own bullshit, and hundreds of American troops are going to die for his foolishness.

UPDATE: How feckless is Warner? See for yourself:

"I certainly support the concept he brings," Warner said of Webb’s proposal. "But I am in the reconsidering posture."

The troops, of course, will be in the "dead" posture, which is considerably less comfortable.

The families will be thinking of you and your posture at the burials, Senator.


Last night a friend sent an email about Dole supporting this

Senator Elizabeth Dole is considering voting for the Webb amendment which states that troops should stay at home as long a time as they are deployed. This would be a HUGE change in her thinking. I encourage you all to call and/or write to her to
encourage her to vote for this bill. The Democrats are nearing the 60 needed votes to make it filibuster proof. Reportedly there are three Republicans considering changing their votes - with Dole being one of them. If all three of them change, then we would have the 60 votes. Call or write her today.

Have you called to support H. Res 333 Impeach Cheney Today? call 202-224-3121 & ask for your Congress member by name

I'm in the reconsidering posture?

What form might that POSTURE take? Oh...yeah..right....that's the head up the ass posture. Sorry. Forgot there for a minute.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

I called Dole's Office

The guy who answered the phone did not say if she would support it or not, but I told him that the Senator should support the troops by supporting this amendment.

I am not opposed to all wars. I'm opposed to dumb wars
