The only move I’m hearing about is Sam Farr, who told the SFGate last night that he was wobbly, so I put him into the "leaning no" group. He’s still moveable so please call his offices: DC 202-225-2861, Salinas 831-424-2229, Santa Cruz 831-429-1976.

I’ve heard that members are being told to vote "yes" because if they don’t, the Republicans will be able to negotiate what they want and the bill will get worse — maybe we’ll get the torture photos. Ooooh scary.

Back in the real world: the supplemental passed in its current form once in the House, it doesn’t need to change to make Republicans happy. It will have no trouble passing on its own, and progressive members won’t have to break their pledge to vote for no war funding that doesn’t include timelines for withdrawal.

Second: Obama has already said he’s going to do everything in his power to block the release of the torture photos.

Please, people. Try to understand: if you have to go back to your district and explain why you broke the promises you’ve been making for close to a decade now about voting for war funding ("sorry — just kidding!) you better get something for it that you don’t already have.

Keep calling. These people are getting strong-armed heavily to abandon everything they profess to believe in and making all Democrats look like unprincipled, sanctimonious jackasses who stand for nothing.
