Right Words, Right Time, Deaf Ears

“Can I or can any parent look into the eyes of an 18-year-old boy and with a clear mind and clear conscience say that we have exhausted every other option before sending him into the perils of conflict? �The world is watching us today as we show how the world’s last remaining superpower sees fit to use its great influence. We are looked to as we set an example for the world.”
- Congresswoman Connie Morella (R-Maryland) regarding giving Bush the authority to attack Iraq, prior to the War Powers Act vote.

At least the American people get a chance every four years for a performance review.
