Senator Durbin, go fuck yourself
Posted by Jill | 7:39 PM
How dare you.

Just barely a month ago you recorded a video greeting for the attendees at Yearly Kos. And now you show us that you really don't give a shit. You don't give a shit about the netroots, you don't give a shit about the 60% of Americans who oppose this clusterfuck of a war that the sniveling little rat-faced git in the White House has gotten us into, and you sure as hell don't care about the Americans you are going to give the Blowmonkey-in-Chief the money to kill just so he doesn't have to clean up his own goddamn mess:

On Wednesday, Durbin portrayed the Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki as falling apart and said Iraq's political landscape was in a state of disintegration. He said at least one U.S. officer on the ground told him that the current 15-month deployments are taking a toll.

In the debate in Washington, the White House reportedly will ask Congress for an additional $50 billion to expand funding for the war in Iraq, a request that seems likely to prolong troop levels at their current elevated number into the spring of 2008, Durbin said.

Even opponents of the war, as Durbin calls himself, find themselves likely to vote for the extra money, he said. "When it comes to the budget, I face a dilemma that some of my colleagues do," he said.

He voted against the war "but felt that I should always provide the resources for the troops in the field," Durbin said. "But it's now reached a point where we have got to change the way we appropriate this money."

Though he said he is likely to approve the increased request -- it would accompany a pending request for an additional $147 billion in war funding -- Durbin said he would work to attach conditions to it that would require troops to begin coming home in the spring.

You fucking tool. What kind of conditions do you think this president is going to heed? There is only one way you are going to end this war.
