Read Me.

Within the article is a description of how the Republican-controlled Senate blocked a Democrat effort to pressure their boss into coming up with a timetable for a phased withdrawl of the 160,000 US troops in Iraq.

With a vote of 58-40 the Democrats in this case were reminiscent of a small child on a road trip; Are We There Yet? Are We There Yet? That being said, the Republicans and five Democrats who recognize and utilize common sense for the most part voted 79-19 for an alternative. The alternative is by far the better solution. It urges that 2006 "should be a period of significant transition to full Iraqi sovereignty".

Wait a minute, the Republicans are voting for a solution that will allow the Iraqi people not only a burgeoning government, but sovereignty and the possibility of future autonomy?! What about the Democrat solution of "cut and run"? With only 24 of them voting for an alternative, at best guess the Democrats seem only to vote somewhere between snacktime and recess on important issues.
