What's with these people? Only three of them -- bloody THREE -- have the courage of their oft-spouted convictions? How can thinking people on either side of this issue have any use for these people:

Democrats said [the vote] was a political stunt and quickly decided to vote against it in an attempt to drain it of significance.

"A disgrace," declared House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. "The rankest of politics and the absence of any sense of shame," added Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat.
Okay. What? You've been calling for this for months, and when given the opportunity to put your money where your big mouths are, it's a political stunt? Well, I suppose there are some political stunts going on here. I won't ding Murtha for views that he appears to come by honestly. As for idiots like Pelosi and Hoyer, though, if this were Gaius's Rome, they wouldn't merit even the scant dignity of an appointment at the Coliseum. Craven. Simply craven.

We've got a battle to win and a larger war to prosecute. Can you imagine what might be accomplished if many of our leaders weren't overtly shilling for the enemy?
