Present.

Said he needed more time for study.

How could you not know if you are for bombing or against?

Well, I sure do hope the guy who had so much trouble figuring out he was answering Senator Markey's lines got my message straight.

1. Markey has released a statement saying that he will study and consult with

experts before deciding how to vote.

Not a word about hearing from constituents. I guess we just don't know what's good for us. So we get ignored--until time comes to pay for this crap.

Apparently, I am not the only one disgusted with Markey for punting. He's catching flack from every direction. I'm sure that's exactly what he thought he might avoid by voting present. why do I have a feeling that, after much consultation and soul searching, he'll vote to authorize bombing?

Gotta dance with the guy what brung ya. It's only good manners. And Kerry anointed endorsed Markey three minutes and 20 seconds after Markey announced his intent to run in the primary.

2. Experts.
Rumsfeld? Cheney? McCain? I guess you can't qualify as an expert if you're not a Neo-Con.

All we can do is remind our representatives that they are our representatives.

3. "Experts"
on killing people. Nancy Pelosi apparently thinks she qualifies because her husband bought her way into the Democratic Party elite.
