Quote of the Day

"I for one am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal. So either we clear and hold and build or let’s go home."

- Sen. Gordon Smith (R-OR), speaking Thursday night on the Senate floor.
Smith, who had voted for the war and supported it ever since, "called for rapid pullouts of U.S. troops from Iraq and said he would have never voted for the conflict if he had known the intelligence that President Bush gave the American people was inaccurate."

Under the current "leadership," the chances of a "cut and run" from Iraq are small. However, the chances of a "cut and run" of support for the Administration on the part of former supporters is increasing exponentially. Rats cutting and running from a sinking ship.
