NEVER HAVE SO MANY LABORED SO HARD FOR SO LITTLE:

Dems make last push for Iraq vote (DAVID ESPO, Mar. 23, 2007, The Associated Press)

On the eve of a critical vote, House Democrats labored Thursday to lock down a majority behind a Sept. 1, 2008, deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq, the sternest test yet for a determined new majority eager to challenge President Bush.

"If it comes off, it's a superb accomplishment," said Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., as the party's leaders cajoled liberals who want an even faster timetable and moderates fearful of tying the hands of the commander in chief and generals in the field.


Given the effect it will have, it's an "accomplishment" to rank with the creation of National Rutabaga Week.

I'm lookiing forward to the big Dem party afterwards where Grand Admiral Reid and Field Marshal Pelosi proudly display this plastic turkey beneath the big "Mission Accomplished" banner.

Of course, the difference between this "accomplishment" and Rutabaga Week is that you won't see Democratic presidential hopefuls running like hell from a vegetable once the campaign commercials start bombarding them for hindering the troops.

Selling the troops down the river for literally "peanuts."

Sometimes the ads just write themselves.
