how many divisions does the Senate have?

Thought Experiment:
Q What if the Senate passes a resolution saying, this is not a good idea. Will that stop you?

VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY: It won't stop us, and it would be, I think detrimental from the standpoint of the troops, as General Petraeus said yesterday. He was asked by Joe Lieberman, among others, in his testimony, about this notion that somehow the Senate could vote overwhelmingly for him, send him on his new assignment, and then pass a resolution at the same time and say, but we don't agree with the mission you've been given.

Q So you're moving forward no matter what the consequences?

VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY: We are moving forward. We are moving forward. The Congress has control over the purse strings. They have the right, obviously, if they want, to cut off funding. But in terms of this effort, the President has made his decision. We've consulted extensively with them. We'll continue to consult with the Congress. But the fact of the matter is, we need to get the job done. I think General Petraeus can do it. I think our troops can do it. And I think it's far too soon for the talking heads on television to conclude that it's impossible to do, it's not going to work, it can't possibly succeed.

All Hail The Great Glory!!!

Or is that what this new Civilian Reserve Corp is all about - the new VolksGrenediers who will be holding the ground as the troops have gone forward to win the winningest wins....

Ah yes, I feel so much safer knowing that thank god, it is not like the president needs to have any sort of consultation relationship with the Senate about the state and nature of the president's preferred wetland restoration projects overseas.....

But, oh well, All Hail Great Leader!!! For He Has Electrolytes, what plants want...
