War Showdown Update

Bush Administration, Congress, Iraq War

For the past several days I’ve been meaning to write about the anticipated showdown between Congress and the White House over the Iraq “emergency” supplement appropriation. And I keep running out of steam before I get to it. But Bob Geiger has been writing most of the stuff I’ve been wanting to write, so I’m going to link to some of his posts on this matter, and if you read them we’ll all be caught up. So here we go, in chronological order so you can see how the issue is developing:

    To quote from one of my favorite episodes of Deep Space Nine: “Lions and Geigers and bears…. Oh my.”

    I heard that John Edwards went upside John McCain’s misshapen head today, over yesterday’s bullshit speech in support of War Funding Without Limits. Rock on, Johnny E.
