Democrats (of course) Blink First on War Funding

While I, for some insane reason, hoped the Democrats would grow a set and stand up to the maniac in the White House, reality has come crashing down on me once again...

WASHINGTON - In grudging concessions to President Bush, Democrats intend to draft an Iraq war-funding bill without a timeline for the withdrawal of U.S. troops and shorn of billions of dollars in spending on domestic programs, officials said Monday.

While details remain subject to change, the measure is designed to close the books by Friday on a bruising veto fight between Bush and the Democratic-controlled Congress over the war.
