The Showdown is On!

Drudge, and Michelle Malkin both have posts up about this story on the AP Wire. Seems the GOP has gotten some cajones, and has decided to put John Murthra (D-Pa) and the rest of the Democrats on the spot, by holding a House vote on an immediate withdrawl from Iraq.

Denny Hastert is definitely going to put some folks on record, one way or another, and then see how many of them match this vote with the one in Oct. 2002 to authorize the President to go to war.

It should be intersting, the Democratic leadership hasn't had much to say about it yet. I'm betting that Murtha gets very little support from his party when this one is voted on in the next few hours.

Christopher Dickey has an online article at Newsweek from today, defending Murtha and basically saying ws should just pull out.

I wonder if he realizes his rant on "idealogues" works both ways? Read it for a laugh.

Don Surber has 2 posts on this here and here.

Live Blogs for the vote available at Michelle Malkin, Euphoric Reality. Reading over some of the statements the Dem's are taking this as a personal attack on Murtha, the GOP are using it as a unified attack on hypocrites.

Update 2:

Does the guy in charge of the House tonight look like Dan Akroyd, or is it just me?
They've been going at Hunter Resolution to Withdraw From Iraq Immediately for the last hour, and it's been pretty funny. If you listen to Murtha, it's all doom and gloom, everyone hates it. Listen to Hunter, it's just the opposite, everyone wants to finish the job. Of the two I feel sorrier for Murtha, it seems like only depressed people visit him.

Final Update:
Vote was 3-403. Three Democrats, Jose Serrano of New York, Robert Wexler of Florida and Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, voted for the proposal for immediate withdrawl. Six voted present, meaning they don't have the stones to make a decision: Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington; Jerrold Nadler, Maurice Hinchey and Major Owens of New York; Michael Capuano of Massachusetts and William Lacy Clay of Missouri..

Jim McDermott, is talking about the honorable Arabs and an Atwa, or arrangement, between enemies. He thinks the Sunni, Shia, Kurds, etc can get together and work it out, if the Arab League steps in.

What a fucking putz, pardon the French. Now he's saying we could have prevented the first Gulf war the same way. I think I'm going to hurl now. I'll have to find his speech in the record this weekend and post it.
