Congress Passes $59 Bn Afghan War Funding Bill

The House of Representatives approved the spending measure with a 308 to 114 vote after it passed the Senate earlier. While 102 Democrats, who have stalled the measure for months, voted against the bill, 160 Republicans supported it despite their frequent opposition to Obama's policies.

since you're such a rabid detractor of partisan politics i thought you'd be thrilled by this behavior

Mind telling me what a 'rabid detractor of partisan politics' is? I don't even remotely understand that... is it English?

Only those extremely sure of their tenure in congress dare vote against a military appropriation with a war going on. Anyone doing so would be scourged for "denying our troops the means to fight" even if all the money ended up being used for bribes.
Dennis Kucinich, Democrat of Ohio, did and has done it before but his vote garnering power is enormous.
