More funny from USA Today, concerning the D push to defund the war without taking responsibility for the result:

Several Democrats said they had been persuaded to support the measure — the party's first binding action to challenge President Bush's war policies — after last-minute changes and a weekend at home with constituents.

The bill is slated for a test vote Thursday in the Appropriations Committee. It is proving a formidable test of Democratic leaders, who are steering a tricky path between liberals who oppose any funding for the military effort and conservatives who do not want to restrict unduly the commander in chief.
The funny part is that they're pretending to care about unduly restricting the president. What they care about is not having a bloodbath until after the 2008 elections. If and when it happens the D's will try to spin it as Bush's problem, but really, it's their cut-and-run plan that stands a good chance of turning the Middle East into a regional killing-field. I hope that some of them are admitting as much inside these closed door meetings.
