THANK YOU, SIR, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER MITCH-SLAP:

Senate approves $70 billion for Iraq-Afghanistan (John Bresnahan, 12/18/07, Politico: The Crypt)

The Senate, by a vote of 70-25, approved $70 billion for combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, adding another political victory to the recent string of wins by President Bush and GOP congressional leaders.

21 Democrats, including Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (Mich.), and Sen. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn.) voted for the bill, while Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.) was the only Republican to vote against it.
