Absolutely pathetic!

Cross-posted from One Good Move. Watch the video and see what I'm talking about.

"You guys are pathetic!" (VIDEO)
The Republicans pulled what is charitably called a cheap stunt. They introduced a resolution. The "Hunter" resolution in an attempt to embarrass the Democrats. The claim was that it was what Murtha had proposed, it wasn't since they had removed key language from Murtha's resolution, namely as soon as it's practicable. Murtha had proposed a planned withdrawal beginning immediately the Republicans proposed leaving at first light. During the debate the Republicans tried to leave the impression that they were debating Murtha's resolution when they were really debating the sham Hunter resolution. In this clip the Democrats are trying to make that clear. The outrage comes when the speaker tries to blur the line once again. A little theater of the absurd, but quite entertaining
