36. They will go out of their way not to make it an issue.
The Dems are just as excited about the money they can get from raping Iraq as the Republicans are. They're the same. They'll make some grumbling noises and pontificate for the cameras (and for their base), and then they'll close the doors and politely agree with the Republicans that it really would be best to just keep the money machine running.
