Good grief! I go to D.C. for a few days to see my sister and the comments section of this blog explodes. I do not intend to get in the middle of what looks like a vigorous debate. I shall continue reading The Rainbow and the Worm and report on it. Yesterday I went to a fund-raising party here in Chapel Hill for a progressive member of the North Carolina House, and judging from the conversation, things do not look good for reversing the reactionary turn of this promisingly purple state. It takes a strong stomach and great patience to try to make even tiny improvements in this benighted country.
Let me say, by the way, that if the vote in the Congress goes against the President and he then launches an attack on Syria anyway, there would be a good constitutional argument for impeachment.
