The Lieberman/Kyl Amendment has passed by an unbelievable 76-22 vote. Roll Call here

Biden's Iraq Partitioning Amendment passed by a vote of 75-23. I'll put up Roll Calls as they become available.

And the House of Representatives, evidently eager to show that they are as spineless and easily cowered as the Senate, voted to condemn MoveOn for the Gen. Betrayus ad, 341-79. Roll Call here.

MoveOn's response to the House vote here.

UPDATE: Kudos to a Democrat who gets it.  Tom Allen

"I respect General Petraeus and honor all of our troops. They have done a phenomenal job and done everything that we have asked of them. General Petraeus is a soldier who simply takes orders from the Commander-in-Chief, President Bush.

Unfortunately the President and his Republican allies in Congress have continued to order General Petraeus and the rest of our troops to continue fighting. What we need is a plan to bring our troops home.

I voted against this resolution today because I believe it is the job of the Congress to bring our troops home, not legislate free speech."
