US Iraq policy - showdown takes a step nearer

Dick Cheney has been outdoing himself today. "Cheney to Congress: Can't run Iraq war by committee" - says CNN:

-Vice president says congressional critics won't influence Bush's troop plans, Cheney says

-Congress does have a role to play in terms of funding

I see. So, after one of the clearest election results in US history, Cheney tells Congress they just pick up the tab whatever George Bush decides to do.

I can't see Nancy Pelosi buying that one, somehow.
