Dishonor Roll

At this point it would be naive not to expect treasonous behavior from Democrats, who are politically invested in our defeat in Iraq and who have made it crystal clear they will do what they can to bring it about. Motivated by a combination of political expediency and raw cowardice, some Republicans have joined in their efforts.

Compliments of Wiggins, here is a list of Republicans who voted in favor of the absurd non-binding resolution condemning reinforcements being sent to Iraq — a measure that accomplishes nothing other than to demoralize our troops and encourage the terrorists trying to kill them:

  • Michael Castle (R-DE)
  • Rick Keller (R-FL)
  • Timothy Johnson (R-IL)
  • Mark Kirk (R-IL)
  • Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD)
  • Fred Upton (R-MI)
  • Jim Ramstad (R-MN)
  • Howard Coble (R-NC)
  • Walter Jones (R-NC)
  • James Walsh (R-NY)
  • Steven LaTourette (R-OH)
  • Philip English (R-PA)
  • Bob Inglis (R-SC)
  • John Duncan (R-TN)
  • Ron Paul (R-TX)
  • Thomas Davis (R-VA)
  • Thomas Petri (R-WI)

I can't think of a more tactful way to characterize these individuals than yellow backstabbing vermin. Apparently they think this will put them on the winning side if the Democrats' slow bleed strategy is successful in securing our defeat. Needless to say, voting for any of them under any circumstances is strongly discouraged.

In the entire Congress, there were two Democrats with the decency to support our troops in the field:

  • Jim Marshall (D-GA)
  • Gene Taylor (D-MS)

Unsurprisingly both are from the South, where it took longer for the Democrat Party to degenerate into the obscenity it is today.
