A lot. To wit:
1. Congressional Democrats continue to ignore the mandate of the American people, choosing to cave to each and every Adminstration demand to feed the meatgrinder, and keep the War Wagon rolling.

The Democrats now say they'll remove a provision from the latest bill that insists on Congressional approval of any adventurism in Iran.

Meanwhile, soldiers die. For nothing.

Impeach Bush? Sure. Then the fuckers should impeach themselves.
