ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

All's Well That Ends Well - The Murtha Resolution

D'oh! (In the immortal words of Homer Simpson)

It might not have been a shining moment for the U.S. House of Representatives, it sounded more like the British House of Commons at "question time" for the PM, but it's over and the other side blinked in the end.

By a vote of 403-3 it is NOT the sense of the house that the troops should be withdrawn from Iraq.

I am happy to say that I was wrong about the tactic chosen by the House leadership. I quit watching when the vote was 203-203 and disaster seemed imminent. Guess I learned my lesson, huh?

None-the-less, the debate was revealing of what many of the Democrats are made.

The one good thing that I think came out of this resolution by Murtha...errr, Duncan Hunter is that now, whenever any Dem calls for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq, we can point to this vote and tell them to shut up. They had their opportunity to vote on the matter and when push came to shove, reason prevailed.

Over on The Christian Prophet blog the Holy Spirit came through with a message regarding an Iraqi pullout, asking who it was who lived by the slogan "We shall overcome!"

As I was telling the Saint furiously during a Yahoo chat while the vote was going on....

Don't worry! It will turn out right in the end. And it did. Watching the House of Rep's vote is like watching sausage being made....
