Mark Pryor (D), the center right leaning Democratic Senator from my former home state of Arkansas, joined the rest of the Democratic Majority and voted for the Iraq funding bill that mandates (or in the Senate’s case, suggests) a pullout from Iraq by 3/08. Glad you found your balls sir.
Also voting with the Democrats were Hagel (R-NE) and Smith (R-OR). Smith is up for election in ’08 and is already polling behind the potential Democratic nominee.
Joementum (CFL), still vying for a seat in McCain’s Presidential campaign, was the only member caucusing with the Democrats who voted against the bill. Now it goes to conference, and then to the President’s desk, where the President will show just how much he supports the troops by vetoing their funding. Way to go sir, you are a true patriot. /snark
Incidentally, this will mark only the 2nd time that GWB43 (29% approval) has used the veto in his 6 years in office. I guess if you’re gonna stink it up, stink it up big.
