In case anyone is wondering
I haven't been posting because things haven't been worth writing about. I speak when there's something to be said, not merely to hear myself talk, and as of late the game has been laughingly simplistic.
Take this for example:
The House on Friday overwhelmingly rejected calls for an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq, a vote engineered by the Republicans that was intended to fail. Democrats derided the vote as a political stunt.
"Our troops have become the enemy. We need to change direction in Iraq," said Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a Democratic hawk whose call a day earlier for pulling out troops sparked a nasty, personal debate over the war.
The House voted 403-3 to reject a nonbinding resolution calling for an immediate troop withdrawal.
"We want to make sure that we support our troops that are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. We will not retreat," Speaker Dennis Hastert, R- Ill., said as the GOP leadership pushed the issue to a vote over the protest of Democrats.
^^^^Typical predictable politics. The GOP incorrectly tries yet again to tie in the war in Iraq with the "war on terror", and the Dems pull short on the wave of discontent they hope to ride to victories in 2006. Me making a pithy comment about this would be akin to bitching that there are insects outside, it's pointless, there is no benefit my thoughts could possibly give to understanding this, it's the most basic of the basic.
Give it a few more days.
