I cannot take the soul-crushing boredom of the absolutely inane national "discussion" we are having over Obama's potential launching of a couple of missiles into Syria.
Obama and his people (including the more-than-usually-hapless John Kerry) on the one hand, cannot articulate a single target for their potential attack that would change a thing in Syria if it were eliminated. And the Republicans and many liberal Democrats too are resorting to a pack of meaningless, foolish arguments to oppose Obama, squandering whatever chance this country has to have a meaningful discussion about foreign policy, and what we can and cannot achieve.
Other than the fact that this idiotic argument is largely drowning out the Republicans' last minute campaign to get Americans to cut their own throats rather than give themselves medical care, it is already clear that this whole sordid affair is going to do nothing but leave our national decision making process even more irrelevant and dysfunctional than before.
Thanks a lot, all of you politicians and thanks to the press too, for all of that.
