Not Funding The Iraq Debacle – Tell The Senate

Chris Dodd has set up a simple way to send the Senate your view on the proposed Dem capitulation. Matt Browner-Hamlin of the Dodd campaign (I am a Dodd supporter) writes:

Earlier this afternoon, my colleague Tim Tagaris sent an email to the campaign email list asking Dodd’s supporters to contact their Senators and ask them to join Senator Dodd in publicly rejecting any Iraq legislation that does not include enforceable deadlines for withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq. Instead, Tim asked that people lobby their Senators to support the Dodd amendment, the best option for immediately withdrawing American troops from Iraq and ensuring there is a firm deadline tied to funding for the redeployment of our troops out of Iraq.

. . . Already over 1,000 emails have been sent to the Senate in the first few of hours of this push, asking our Senators to vote “YES” on the Dodd amendment and “NO” on any legislation without hard deadlines.

Just say no to funding the Iraq Debacle.

    I have a huge amount of respect for Matt Browner-Hamlin.  From what I understand, all the candidates promised to send representatives to the yearlykos LGBT caucus, and Matt was the only one who came.  Molto props to him and the Dodd campaign for that.

    Why is something this simple (the refusal to fund without deadlines) so hard for other candidates to jump on board?  The sickening thing is, they want to lasso support for being against the war, they just don’t want to have to vote for it.  It’s low-risk political masturbation.
