The House "votes" on a pullout....

After trashing Rep. George Murtha (D-PA)'s reputation, House Republicans brought a measure to the floor last night calling for an immediate pullout from Iraq. Of course, Murtha didn't call for this (his plan was over six months), but that didn't stop bright minds from having a clear and logical debate. For example:
At one point in the emotional debate, Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio, told of a phone call she received from a Marine colonel.

"He asked me to send Congress a message -- stay the course. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message -- that cowards cut and run, Marines never do," Schmidt said. Murtha is a 37-year Marine veteran.
Oops. And given the next post, looks like Schmidt has to send some troops in Iraq some messages.
