Hey! Filibustering Senate Republicans! Over here!

Stand by your man isn't quite cutting it, contrary to what you have been spouting all night long on the senate floor,
    Indeed, as an NYT editorial noted, an “honest reading” of the report leads to a powerful rebuke to Mr. Bush’s approach to the war on terror.” The Times added, “It vindicates those who say that the Iraq war is a distraction from the real fight against terrorism — a fight that is not going at all well.”

    A separate piece on the administration’s reaction to the report was equally blunt: “President Bush’s top counterterrorism advisers acknowledged Tuesday that the strategy for fighting Osama bin Laden’s leadership of Al Qaeda in Pakistan had failed.” The WaPo’s Michael Abramowitz added that the NIE undermined the White House’s rationale for staying in Iraq, and explained that Bush’s defense of his counter-terrorism policies has begun to “unravel.”
Reality is calling. Better pick up.
