Today’s House vote on Iraq was a waste of energy, and precious political capital, by the Democrats. Bush will certainly veto the resolution, and Dems will then be ceaselessly ridiculed by the right-wing media machine as naifs and weaklings. Congress can only change the direction of this war by removing the grossly, indeed criminally incompetent Commander in Chief who is prosecuting it. This Administration is unarguably guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. If Congress cannot muster the courage to impeach this inept and destructive President, then it will have squandered the mandate given to it by the voters last November.
