The Cowardly Lion Shows How Brave He Is

Hugh Hewitt is a serious piece of work. First, he wants us to credit him with bravery just for going to work every day in the Empire State Building and then he started his own (albeit pathetic) one man campaign to get Rick Santorum on SCOTUS. Now he's upset that Republican congresspeople would dare--dare, I tell you!--to accede to the will of their constituents and sign a non-binding resolution criticizing Bush's escalation: (h/t RP)

If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution.

What a brave, brave man Hughie is. With other people's lives. In the crossfire of a civil war. I'm sure that it's at least as dangerous as working in the Empire State Building, right?
