The Biggest Loser?

Congress or Boston City Council?
Tough call, I know.

Both have debated irrelevant, non-binding, "look at me, I'm standing up the George W. Bush" resolutions. Both have done their part, however miniscule, to undermine the chances of victory for modernity in Iraq. Both have revealed they are weaselly, gutless wonders.

But the BIGGEST losers? Congress, by far.

Yes, it's true that, unlike the morons on City Council, debating Iraq policy is actually part of Congress's job. But that's why Congress's "this vote means nothing" vote is even more shameful. Because Congress actually has the power to DO something. They could force the troops home tomorrow, or (more realistically) start the process.

Instead, members of Congress run to the nearest TV camera and away from their responsibilities. It's disgusting and indefensible. If the Mainstream Media weren't suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome, they'd be making that point, too.
