Congress to Kerry: Oh, shut up

New York Daily News editorialized The U.S. Senate yesterday made short work of John Kerry's crackpot demand that American troops be out of Iraq by a date of his choosing,

I like that headline "Congress to Kerry: Oh, shut up". I guess that means Kerry's chance at the nomination is not very high.
and the senators then went on to dismiss even a far more moderate proposal for "phased redeployment" on a nontimetable basis.
I guess that means telling the insurgents we are going to pull out, but it is a secret when, and if they kill a few more people we may decide to do it sooner than otherwise.
And so both chambers of Congress are now unmistakably on record as recognizing fixed withdrawal to be folly.
