Out of Iraq Caucus members Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-OH), Neil Abercrombie (D-HI), Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), and Barney Frank (D-MA).

Democrats are still trying to find the votes to pass a measure setting a timeline for surrender in Iraq. They're still a couple votes short...and as for the $124 billion funding bill that does everything from fund the war to bail out the spinach industry in California? They're all going to vote for it. So much for principle...I guess everything does have a price.

The Out of Iraq caucus...a group in Congress dedicated to surrender in Iraq....was evidently appeased enough by a timeline attached to the appropriations measure that they've now decided to not block the measure. The real reason is they don't have the votes to stop it. With Democrats loading up the bill with pork, it is destined to pass. Forget about stopping the war....this is is all about buying votes and cashing in.

But here's the absolute best part. As a result of the Democrats' inability to stop the war in Iraq and cut the funding for it, ultra, anti-war leftists have begun protesting at campaign events and showing up at members' offices in Congress. The latest victim of a protest? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Just yesterday a bunch of crazies were arrested outside Pelosi's office yesterday afternoon.

The name of the demonstration? "Pin the war on the donkey." Priceless.
