Pubbies get backbone, bring DemocRAT draft bill to a vote
The DemoncRATs have been waging a whispering campaign attempting to scare young folks about a purportedly upcoming draft ala the myriad of "secret plans" Hanoi John French Kerry keeps speaking of (though he's the only one calling for a draft on his website). Today the Republicans showed a little backbone and brought the bill, originally submitted by Charles Rangel, Democrat from NY, to the floor for a vote. When the dust settled even Rangel, the bill's sponsor, voted against it and only two other DemoncRATs, Joe Murtha and Fourtney "Pete" Stark, voted for the bill. Here is the final vote count lest all draft rumors now be outed as the LIEs that they were:
