Hoist on Their Own Petard

Dems' Bluff Called in House Vote

From MSNBC [emphasis added]:
WASHINGTON - House Republicans maneuvered for swift rejection Friday of any notion of immediately pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq, sparking a nasty, sometimes personal debate over the war and a Democratic lawmaker’s own call for withdrawal.

Furious Democrats accused the GOP of orchestrating a political stunt, leaving little time for debate and changing the meaning of a withdrawal resolution offered by Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania.
Forcing Congress into secret session to bloviate for political gain isn't a political stunt, Mr. Harry Reid? Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

The Democrats have been pandering shamelessly of late to their own leftwing lunatic fringe by flirting with the idea of surrender to Islamic terrorists. Last night they let faux hawk John Murtha go a little bit too far. Now the Republicans have called them on it. Time to put up or shut up, Donkeys.

If the vote is taken tonight, I'll post the results.
