We may lose the vote, but we'll win the debate

Yes, my friends that's how silly the spin has gotten, in Washington D.C. That quote was taken from this Washington Post article, where it appears the GOP fears there will be Republicans who will actually *gasp* vote with Democrats.

The GOP, whose members have conceded they are likely to lose, is treating the debate like a mini-political campaign, deploying a rapid-response team to counter Democrats' statements, aggressively trying to get its leaders on television and radio, and creating a "resource center" off the House floor where members can fill their arms with maps, research material, videos or other visual aids to use during their floor time.

"We may lose the vote, but we'll win the debate," said Kevin Smith, a spokesman for House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio).

Good luck on that Kevin, I hope to hear how that turns out for Ohio and for the rest of the nation. The huge amount of time wasted on this non-binding resolution alone seems to not get as much focus. Yes, it's supposed to send a message, but considering most of us who pay attention have already heard the message, the real question seems to be when are they going to do more than just squabble over non-binding resolutions...

And these twits are supposed to be leading the country?

Seems like a waste of good money, our money and our time.
