Speaking of "Kick Me"...

GOP senators seem determined to cost the party more seats in 2008. This time, they've blocked an amendment that would allow more home leave for our overextended troops.

John Warner, Republican from Virginia, backed away from supporting the amendment, offered by fellow Virginian Jim Webb.

From Chuck Hagel--the money quote:

The White House has been very effective of making this a loyalty test for the party.

Oh yeah, and the Republicans also blocked efforts to restore habeas corpus.

Keep showing your party loyalty, guys. Just to be on the safe side, some of you might want to start prepping your resumes for after 2008/2010.
