This says it all...
Buried in a long post, Digby related this old joke and compares it to the timidity that the Democrats are currently displaying on Iraq:
Howard and Joe are facing the firing squad. The executioner comes forward to place the blindfold on them. Howard disdainfully and proudly refuses, tearing the thing from his face. Joe turns to him and pleads: "Please Howard, don't make trouble!
Such a nice summary. It is just beyond me that the Dems are not even attempting to find their collective balls on this issue given how badly the Republicans have screwed things up, how much corruption is running wild, and how low Dubya's approval ratings are... it's beyond me.
