Oh Boy!
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, October 10, 2007

The breathless Greg Sargent announces:
I've just learned that nearly 90 members of the House of Representatives have now added their names to a letter to the President pledging not to vote for any more funding for the war and only to vote for supplementals that fully fund withdrawal and nothing else.

Back in July, 70 House members signed a similar letter vowing to only fund withdrawal. At the time, The Politico deemed this a "big development," adding: "This may be the beginning of the end for the Iraq War."

Now more than 15 new members have added their names to the letter, bringing the total to 87, another significant step forward.
Well if Politico said 70 was a "big development", 15 more must be monumental. Stupendous. Huge.

Or it could still be far less than the majority needed to defund the war.

But hey, you have to celebrate what you have, not what you wish you had, huh?

That was mean to inject some reality into the reality-based community.

I recognize some co-signers as the crazier ones on the progressive side.
