Respect is to be given to Virginia Virtucon and Right-Wing Liberal for their coverage of this tidbit of news.
When asked why he voted for the timetable to get out of Iraq, after being opposed to such a timetable during his campaign, Jim Webb let loose with this whopper of a statement...
"There will be very little motivation for al-Qaeda to continue in Iraq once we have left."
So the man sits on a certain position, because he knows it will play to the moderates in his home state. He then blatantly turns around and votes against the position he was sitting upon for all those months during the summer and fall of 2006. He then justifies his flip-flop with one of the most ludicrious statements of the year, if not the decade. This is lunacy of Harry Reid proportions.
C'mon Jim, you may have been "born fightin'", but you're "livin' in lockstep" with your party.
