Democrats Condemn Troops

Today the House of Representatives voted on a resolution to condemn the abuse of Iraqi prisoners while commending members of the U.S. armed forces serving in Iraq.
Sounds like a slam-dunk, doesn’t it? The Republcans thought so; the 213 Republicans present all voted “Yes.” But the issue wasn’t so clear to the Democrats: 49 voted “No,” including three out of four Minnesota Democrats, Reps. Sabo, McCollum and Oberstar.
Since the Democrats presumably weren’t voting in favor of abusing prisoners, it appears that the liberals in the House–including the three Minnesotans named above–can’t bear to vote for a resolution commending the troops who risk their lives, day after day, so that Democrats and their families can live in safety. Has there ever been such a party?
