What, More War?

I must have been asleep again..

"Amendment No. 2073 to the Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act, which passed on July 11."
The Senate unanimously voted 97-0.

Cosponsored by Lieberman's pals Kyl, Graham, Collins, Sessions with strong support by McCain and Levin .
It was reported that the text was worded in such a way that voting against it would have been political suicide for Senators.
Levin introduced the vote on the Lieberman Amendment by stressing that the Senate stands as one and that Iran had better listen.
You would think it would be political suicide to get us into another war as opposed to.. I don't know.. maybe diplomacy.



3 Senators did not vote... Johnson recovering from brain surgery, Vitter had some PR issues w/hookers and Brownback probably had Vitter's back.

That's right, all but 3 Senators voted for this piece of crap otherwise known as the Lieberman Amendment.
This potentially puts us one step closer to a War with Iran!

Damn these chickenhawk mutherfuckers!
Lieberman pulled this same crap in 2002. I don't recall if was it was before he kissed Bush on the mouth or when he got down on his knees to fix Bush's zipper.

If you are having any trouble eliminating Presidential Candidates from the big stinking pile of wannabees, this list should help.
Alphabetical by Senator Name
Biden (D-DE), Yea
Brownback (R-KS), Not Voting
Clinton (D-NY), Yea
Dodd (D-CT), Yea
Obama (D-IL), Yea


Who you callin' a NEOCON?
I would bet half of these miserable excuses for representation didn't even read the damn bill.

Comments:
