Congress Votes to Surrender
The mainstream media, covering the first Democratic Presidential candidates debate, remarked upon the remarkable unity of the candidates against the "common enemy," namely President George W. Bush. The Democrats seem to have forgotten that President Bush is not running for re-election. They also seem to have forgotten that the enemy posing a deadly peril to freedom in the Western democracies is not President Bush, but Islamism. Dry Bones has not forgotten, however, as Yaakov Kirschner proves with the cartoon above. The Democratic majority in Congress, however, has elected to accept defeat in Iraq as the price it will pay for political victory over the Bush Administration. Congress has as much as said to Al Qaeda and the Baathists insurgents, "Just hold out until October, and the U.S. military will no longer be around to oppose your efforts to take power in Iraq."
