Did Anyone Notice?

This Memorial Day the Senate recessed withOUT voting on the defense authorization bill. Steve Clemons gives details:
Senior Republican Congressional sources have informed The Washington Note that the funding of the Defense Department and the front-line needs of U.S. soldiers are being held back to hammer John Warner.
Let me see here, there are soldiers, marines, airmen, getting killed in Iraq and the White House is playing politics with the Defense budget? Are you kidding me? How much more burden can our boys over there take on for ol' W?
