Michelle Malkin is doing a stunning job of keeping track of the bloviating from Senate Democrats, heckling by CodePink, and the reports of REAL progress taking place in Iraq.

Ron Winter sums it with his withering criticism of Senator Carl Levin. Disgusting.
Also, I got a call from Kristinn Taylor at FreeRepublic.com who brought a banner into the Senate chambers in D.C.
It read "Thank You General Petraeus."
Naturally, the Capitol police snatched his sign. And let the CodePinkos wave their anti-American banner that read "Bring the troops, home NOW!"
Predictably, Senator Obama is now grabbing the spotlight by demanding that Americans negotiate with the terrorist government of Iran.
This man is NOT fit to be our Commander-in-Chief.

Sen. John Warner (R-VA): “Can you now, just in simple language, tell us, ‘yes, it is worth it’ and ‘it is making us safer here at home’?“
Gen. David Petraeus: “Senator, I do believe it is worth it … I took on the task, the privilege, of command of Multinational Force-Iraq, because I do believe that it is worth it and I do believe the interests there are of enormous importance, again, to our country, not just to the people of Iraq and the people of that region and the world.”
Sen. Warner: “Mr. Ambassador, how do you answer? Is it providing greater security here at home?”
Ambassador Ryan Crocker: “Sir, I will try to answer that at two levels. First, in the little over a year that I have been in Iraq we have seen a significant degradation of al Qaeda's presence and its abilities. Al Qaeda is our mortal and strategic enemy. So, to the extent that al Qaeda’s capacities have been lessened in Iraq, and they have been significantly lessened, I do believe that makes America safer.”
