Apparently, that's too much to ask of the Democrats in Congress, this week.
According to the WSJ, Harry "All Is Lost" Reid and Carl Levin put their pointy little heads together to block a very simple "thank you" to the troops in Iraq:
Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin teamed up to block a vote on a bipartisan resolution "recognizing the strategic success of the troop surge in Iraq" and thanking our men and women in uniform for their efforts.Please note from above: Carl Levin is the Armed Services Chairman. So, for him -- and the rest of the Democrats, regardless of the responsibility of their positions -- partisanship comes ahead of respecting our men and women in uniform.
Why am I not surprised?
