John Kerry Gets His Kink On

"I've had enough of 'nonbinding,' " said Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.),
who is helping to draft the new Democratic proposal.

Bring out the ball-gags and the fur-lined handcuffs. John Kerry is done with
this nonbinding vanilla nonsense and the Senate Floor might just get a lot more interesting!

Senate Democratic leaders intend to unveil a plan next week to repeal
the 2002 resolution authorizing the war in Iraq in favor of narrower
authority that restricts the military's role and begins withdrawals of
combat troops.


In both chambers, Democratic lawmakers are eager to take up
binding legislation that would impose clear limits on U.S. involvement
in Iraq after nearly four years of war. But Democrats remain divided
over how to proceed.

I'm not saying Pelosi and the fine folks in the House are ho-hum or frigid, but their non-binding resolutions just don't cut the muster and quite frankly bore me. Enough of that kinder, gentler stuff. Nay, the American people, want something hard-core and binding. So bring out the shackles, the restraints and the blindfolds and lets see where this plan goes.

I only hope we can watch all the uncensored action on C-SPAN and Dick Cheney is absent that day.
