that whole 'denying an up or down vote' meme was old and stupid when it was the dems doing it and the reps complaining and its old and stupid now.

having said that, the reluctance of the republicans to vote either for or against the war is kind of amusing.

poor, corrupt, useless, sack-of-shit asshats.

As survival strategy it works. Cowards always survive so fucking them ensures the genes live on.

I see their other strategy works to some degree.

'the most important issue'?

That whole due process and freedom of speech thing is kinda more important to me than if the rich, powerful oil barons want to go off killing foreigners.

Wow!  This is Mr. Reid, accused of being a wimp, forcing Congress to stay overnight if the Republicans want to filibuster?  Now we're talking.

Yeah, apparently that "up or down vote" thing REALLY meant "you Democrats are preventing our Rubber-Stamp from approving the latest idiotic Supreme Court nominee", not "we really want to do the right thing".

So when it's DEMOCRATS who want an up or down vote, THEN doing a filibuster is a perfectly justifiable thing to do.  Right.  Can you say "hypocrisy", Republicans?  Do you know what it means?

Come on, don't be a dog in the manger.  Vote on it, lose, and let Bush veto it -- you KNOW you can sustain a veto.

I think it is sort of like the mess nobody says anything about for fear whoever they tell will think they did it.

It's pretty well guaranteed that whatever is done at this point, Iraq is fucked.

They think it is better to whistle and walk away with their hands in our pockets.
