Desperately Seeking Congressional Spine

Tony Blair, voluntary Bush brainwashee extraordinaire, knows it's time that non-Iraqi troops get out of Iraq. Why don't American leaders?

Yeah, yeah, I know: Bush doesn't want to see it and won't ever see it.

But Congress? Why don't Congress members see this as an emergency and stand up to Bush right now? It's criminal that they continue to allow the Bush machine to keep feeding American soldiers into the meat grinder that is Iraq. It's criminal that they allow our soldiers to kill Iraqi men, women, and children daily. It's criminal that they don't have the nerve to take real action.

I voted straight Democrat in the midterm election so that we'd get some folks in office who would reverse America's freefall into right-wing depravity. Where's the action I was promised? Certainly not in a toothless wrist-slap of a nonbinding resolution on Bush's troop surge.

Dammit, Congress, grow a spine—and do it fast. Neither this country nor the world has time to wait for you to quit being gutless wonders. End the mess in Iraq and don't let Bush start another in Iran.

And while you're at it, get busy impeaching first Cheney and then Bush. You hear me? This is your constituent speaking.
