THE PLANK DECEMBER 6, 2006

The Sour Grapes Club

Rick Santorum and Jim Bunning cast the only two votes against the Robert Gates nomination.

"Mr. Gates has repeatedly criticized our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan without providing any viable solutions to the problems our troops currently face," Bunning said in statement from Washington.
"I am concerned with the message he is sending to our troops and our allies around the world. We need a secretary of defense to think forward with solutions and not backward on history we cannot change."
