Hot air won’t power Baghdad

If Harry Reid and the rest of the Democratic really want to end the war, they’ll cut off the funding. All else is just hot air and political posturing. Apparently it’s more important to them to get an advantage in the 2008 elections rather than bring the troops home now and end the slaughter. Hence we have a lot of The Clock is Ticking, Mr. President from the Dems, waiting for Bush to make (another) mistake. Wow, how principled the Democrats are, letting more die so they might get a short-term domestic political gain.

Meanwhile, insurgents in Iraq have crippled the power to Baghdad, but doubtless D.C. politicians are too self-absorbed to understand this means the US has already lost.
