Senate postures while Bush lays plans for Armageddon

I didn't have great expectations of the new Democratic majority in either house and I haven't slept in days so I'm much crankier than usual, but this brings me beyond disappointment and into the realm of disgusted disbelief. The idiot legislators we worked our asses off to put into office to do something about this White House run amok, apparently thinks they can pretend to stand up to the White House and no one will notice.
For days, two groups of senators had backed competing resolutions of opposition: a sharply worded version by Sens. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) and Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), and a more conciliatory resolution by Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.). The stalemate was broken Wednesday night when Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) backed a revised version of Warner's resolution.

Democratic leaders noted that the compromise puts them in a far stronger position to defeat a Republican-led filibuster against the resolution when it is brought to a vote next week.
Who the fuck cares? These guys are dicking around with non-binding resolutions that don't mean shit in terms of actually preventing Bush from doing any crazy thing he wants and Democratic leaders are worried about sending a bi-partisan message to the White House that essentially says, we hate your idea but go ahead and stay on the same stupid completely failed course anyway?

Cruising through the headlines, just for starters, I see the NIE has finally been released and says Iraq is broken and no stupid surge is going to fix it. I see Bush has understated, (some might say lied about) the cost of the stupid surge and we have apparently been inadvertently training and equipping the Shia militias who now stand against us. Bush is duplicating the same sort of deceits that got us into Iraq with an eye towards opening up a new front in his grand plan for global warfare in Iran and Syria and the best these idiots in the Senate can do is create the illusion of standing up to him?

I'm more convinced daily that we need to dump every single incumbent in both parties if we're going to take back our government from these fools who so obviously are overcome with an overblown sense of entitlement. These guys have simply become so comfortable with their status and their power to pull the strings of government that they no longer can hear the people, nor do they care to listen. It's so time to pare out the dead wood in this branch of government.

I don't think any of the politicians grasp the enormity of the situation. they are behaving like peace time legistlators having a disagreement. meanwhile, people are getting blown to smithereens in iraq.
