By turns sober and furious, the two senators vowed again Tuesday to vote against -- and, if possible, filibuster -- the troop-funding bill and all other legislation until they get their way. (emphasis mine)
I can't tell you how many times the same tactic was taken by Democrats in the last Congress and my conservative associates lambasted the Dems taking such action as "unpatriotic," saying they were putting their own interests ahead of funding our troops. Today, without looking, I bet those same associates are calling Graham a hero for his actions.
It's a ridiculous argument either way, but the point about partisanship needs to be made.
