“Reality” as defined in an AP Headline: [url=http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070218/ap_on_go_co/us_iraq;_ylt=AkrnVKRqbOKZBwPS8HYpyqes0NUE]Senate GOP foils debate on Iraq surge[/url]
Reality as defined by actual events: Senate Republicans [i]insist[/i] on a [i]full[/i] debate on Iraq – including a vote on their non-binding resolution to not cut-off funding for soldiers in theatre (rumored to have the support of up-to half the Democrat caucus in the Senate) – and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid won’t allow debate to proceed unless [i]his[/i] “vote of no-confidence” non-binding resolution is the [i]only[/i] thing that is voted on. In fact, Republicans voted not to cut-off debate, but to [i]expand[/i] it.
Which version do you think the American people will be spoon-fed and therefore come to believe?
Oh, and how many times over the last four years did we see a headline along the lines of “Senate Democrats foil debate on …”?
I hope there is a special place in Hell’s ninth circle for AP editors and writers. I truly do.
