Looks like the NY Times wants the Democrats to continue looking like total idiots, pushing forward Iraq withdrawal bills that it admits are fruitless.
Courtesy NRO's The Corner (since I refuse to link directly to the NY Times):
So there ya go. The NY Times wants Democrats to "keep at" their "repeated and fruitless votes on the war."
News section (Pg. 15): Iraq votes were ‘repeated and fruitless’
… House and Senate Democrats have made some rookie management mistakes in their first year of combined Congressional control. They have angered Republicans with occasional heavy-handed treatment, as well as repeated and fruitless votes on the war.

Editorial (Pg. 18): Democrats ‘must keep at it’
Democrats say they will continue to push the president and his Republican allies to concede their failed war policy and change course. They must keep at it.

Is Karl Rove running the NY Times now?
