Just about the time I was ready to give Joe Biden a little slack the jackass votes to give Bush all the frickin' money he wants to continue the Iraq occupation. Then the Delaware-slick has the balls to say he's committed to supporting the troops while at the same time pressuring the pResident to end the occupation. What fucking utter nonsense.
Combover Joe is pushing the introduction of "Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles" to keep our soldiers and Marines safer, so they can do their job more efficiently. Might I remind you that the solider's "job" is to kill some people, capture and incarcerate the ones not killed and oppress the rest. The Iraqi occupation is warfare more in line with Ceasar's conquest and occupation of Gaul than the liberation of France in World War II.
But, of course, seeking to keep his Democratic anti-war bono fides in tact, following handing Bush a blank check on Iraq last week, Combover Joe introducted legislation to repeal the 2002 Iraq war authorization. Somehow that seems to me to be tantamount to letting the horse out of the barn after it has burned down.
