Democrats - Party of Defeat
- Sen. Barack Obama Tuesday night called on Congress to force President George W. Bush to pull almost all combat troops from Iraq by early next year.
As CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports, Obama hopes the Senate will vote on his "Iraq War De-Escalation Act."
And how about Russ Feingold (D-Idiot):
- The repercussions of an airline's decision to remove a group of Muslim imams from a commercial flight in Minneapolis could be heard in Congress this year, with civil rights groups pushing Democratic lawmakers to ban racial profiling.
The incident happened in November and reinvigorated an old proposal that got little attention from the GOP.
With Democrats now in control, Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) made it clear the issue will be a priority for him.
''Many law-abiding African Americans, Arab Americans, Latino Americans and others live with the fear of being racially profiled as they go about their everyday lives,'' Feingold said.
We are so doomed.
