Meanwhile America's feckless Congress has yet to legislate any checks whatsoever on the war powers of the desperate, incompetent, and arrogant occupants of the White House.*

Update: In connection with this story, Hillary Clinton, the leading contender for the US presidency, may have just blown her chance to get re-elected. Money quote from Andrew Sullivan:
Clinton also faces a problem. She just voted to designate the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist entity. Giving this president one authorization to go to war might be seen as a problem with the Democratic base. Giving him two should surely be a deal-breaker.What was Hillary thinking?
