In an overwhelming vote, the Senate last night voted to condemn the ... er, advertisement attacking General David Petraeus on the eve of his report to Congress on the Iraq situation.

Voting against the resolution were Democrat presidential contenders Senator Hitlary Rodham Clinton (D-Dogpatch) and Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). Senator Barak Obama (D-Ill.) did not vote. Obama did, however, vote for a substitute proposal and put himself on record as endorsing the Democrat smear that challenging former Senator Max Cleland's elevation of union interests over national security interests in a homeland security bill was a challenge to his "patriotism" (wrong: it was a challenge to his judgment and his priorities; whine, whine, WHINE!). The substitute (offered by Senator Barbara Boxer) also whined about ads attacking Senator John Kerry's smears of American troops during the Vietnam War.

In a rational world, Clinton and Dodd would be immediately disqualified from further public service, and certainly from consideration for nomination for President in one of the nation's two major political parties.

In the modern Democrat Party, however, one is the frontrunner.

I weep for the future.
