Hey dems, heads up!
Catch! Here comes the ball, it's flying your way. Don't drop it, now!
Yep, it's put up or shut up time in the US House. The repubs have put this Iraqi troop thing to a vote, to be held this evening.
Here are the dems' options as I see them. They can vote YES (remove troops immediately), which will probably be defeated because they are the minority. If things get better later in Iraq, they will look like utter buffoons down the line. In that respect, they'll have to hope things get worse to save their reps. How defeatist.
On the other hand, they can always vote NO. That leaves them looking like hypocrites. If things get better, they'll salvage some rep, but if things get worse they'll be blamed.
Can you think of any other options? I'd like the hear em.
