Democrats Cave

So, I don't get it. The American people, almost all of them, 7 out of 10, are against the war. The Democrats are against the war. But the spending bill that Bush wanted will be passed now, with no timetable, funding the war at least for another year. And what do we get out of this? Pelosi and Co. have done a good job up until now making clear that the only way that legislators can help and this war is to deny funds to continue it. No one wants the soldiers being underfunded (the Bush Administration was doing a good job of that on their own--who needs Kevlar or armored Humvees?), but short of the president changing his mind, we've got no other option.

And now this.

It's bullshit.
