craven democrats pretend to be anti-war

So now, from Drudge, I see the link to this New York Times story about how the Democrats are planning "symbolic" votes against President Bush's plans to escalate the war on Iraq.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 — Democratic leaders said Tuesday that they intended to hold symbolic votes in the House and Senate on President Bush’s plan to send more troops to Baghdad, forcing Republicans to take a stand on the proposal and seeking to isolate the president politically over his handling of the war.

Senate Democrats decided to schedule a vote on the resolution after a closed-door meeting on a day when Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts introduced legislation to require Mr. Bush to gain Congressional approval before sending more troops to Iraq...

...“If you really want to change the situation on the ground, demonstrate to the president he’s on his own,” said Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. “That will spark real change.”...
Hey Joe, where were you back in 2002, when the Iraq War Resolution was on the table? Oh that's right, you and a significant number of other Democrat warmongers were voting "yea", that's where. That vote had the potential to make some difference, before all hell broke loose, unlike this "vote", which is all about posing in front of the people that voted them in so they can say "Look at me! See, I'm anti-war!"

These pathetic, hypocritical, whining, posing Democrats are really making me sick. (To his credit, Kennedy voted "nay" on the Iraq War Resoltion - despite his other flaws, Kennedy does seem to have inherited some real anti-war principles from his papa).
