How depressing

Regardless of the political shenanigans, the fact is that a resolution calling for the end of the Iraq war was placed before the House of Reprehensibles on Friday, and only THREE critters voted for it. THREE. Out of 435.

I mean--Juan Cole has a point--it was political clowning by the Repugs. And Bob Harris has a bunch of great points, especially that a pol or pundit has to be a fanatic imperialist hawk like Murtha to even be heard in the war debate.

But I agree with Ron Jacobs and Cynthia McKinney (one of the three)--when finally given a chance to vote against a criminal war, you darn well should take it.
