Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

How to End a War

My how things have changed. Four years ago, anyone who criticized the Iraq war was considered an enemy of the state, soft on terrorism. As late as six months ago, Bush and Cheney were saying that anyone who publicly disagreed with them on the war was giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Howard Dean was widely insulted as a moron for opposing the war in 2003-2004. Jack Murtha was excoriated for demanding withdrawal in 2006. Now, as of this afternoon, both houses of the Congress have voted a date certain to end the war: the House chose August 31, 2008, the Senate chose March 1, 2008. The bills will be reconciled and sent to Bush. Bush's veto is assured, but he also has to veto the war funding attached to them and send it back. Ending the war in less than 18 months is now the express will of the US Congress.

We, the ridiculed anti-war crazies, have become the majority. Elections have consequences, eh?

And now, Harry Reid is saying that the Senate will take up a bill to cut off war funding by sometime in 2008. Amazing. This has been a pipe dream until now.
