Senate Democrats move on...

One of the more important issues of the day in the US Senate was not getting our troops out of Iraq. It was not stopping the endless and senseless slaughter of our soldiers and the Iraqi people.

Most important to the US Senate was defending the sensitive honor of one of our 4 Star Generals, General Petraeus. It seems that, even though it was President Bush that through him under the bus into the political tumbler, by making him the spokesperson for continuing the war, criticism will hurt his feelings. If left unchecked, our best and bravest in uniform will piss themselves because Bush's political fall-guy was taken to task by a magazine ad.

Here is some of the text of the Cornyn Amendment:

SA 2934.

(8) A recent attack through a full-page advertisement in the New York Times by the liberal activist group,, impugns the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces.

(b) Sense of Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate--

(1) to reaffirm its support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, including General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq;

(2) to strongly condemn any effort to attack the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces; and

(3) to specifically repudiate the unwarranted personal attack on General Petraeus by the liberal activist group

The Amendment passed, 72-25 with the help of these 22 Democratic Senators:

Baucus (D-MT)
Bayh (D-IN)
Cardin (D-MD)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Conrad (D-ND)
Dorgan (D-ND)
Feinstein (D-CA)
Johnson (D-SD)
Klobuchar (D-MN)
Kohl (D-WI)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Leahy (D-VT)
Lincoln (D-AR)
McCaskill (D-MO)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Nelson (D-FL)
Nelson (D-NE)
Pryor (D-AR)
Salazar (D-CO)
Tester (D-MT)
Webb (D-VA}

Somehow, we need to remind these namby-pamby, milktoast Democrats that THEY WON THE FUCKING ELECTION!... that they were charged with the task of getting us out of Bush's War of Choice in Iraq... that they are the majority and need to start acting like it.
