Four Senators With Balls

“I cannot and will not simply give this President another blank check,” said Dodd in a statement Wednesday. “Half-measures and equivocations are not going to change our course in Iraq. If we are serious about ending the war, Congress must stand up to this President’s failed policy now – with clarity and conviction.”

Here’s video of Dodd explaining how he will vote:

    Well H.L. I hate to say I predicted this. It was only a matter of when. It seems there are now two sure bets in life: that everything The monkey touches will turns to a mound of festering shit and that the dems will always roll over and point their collective asses skyward. We’re so screwed.
