Breaking: House voting on Iraq resolution (Update: 256-153)

Should have the results in about ten minutes. It’s a foregone conclusion that it’ll pass, the only question is how many Democrats will cross the aisle.

Stand by.

Update: It passed 256-153. 42 Democrats and three Republicans switched sides. I’ll look for the roll.

Update: The AP reports. Quote:

“Stay the course, I don’t think so Mr. President. It’s time to face the facts,” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California answered, as she called for a new direction in the conflict. “The war in Iraq has been a mistake. I say, a grotesque mistake.”

Update: The roll. The three Republicans who crossed were Ron Paul, Jim Leach, and John Duncan.

Update: Here’s how Fox is reporting the news. Har.


Update: The roll by state.

Update: Slublog points to this screed on Ron Paul’s website to explain why he might have voted no. Eight shades of crazy.
