A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Daschle imitates Groucho Marx: Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) has set the bar higher for military intervention in Iraq. Previously "His Obstructionist" demanded, rightly, that Bush needs to make the case to Congress. Now, Daschle wants more.


Although Bush expressed the hope earlier this week of receiving a vote of support before Congress recesses in a few weeks, Daschle indicated yesterday that his own backing and that of other senators would hinge in part on Bush's success in gathering international support. He suggested that Bush try to get the kind of U.N. Security Council resolution -- authorizing the use of "all necessary means" to evict Iraqi forces from Kuwait -- that Bush's father obtained before the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

"That, too, will be a central factor in how quickly the Congress acts," Daschle told reporters. "If the international community supports it, if we can get the information we've been seeking, then I think we can move to a resolution. But short of that, I think it would be difficult for us to move until that information is provided and some indication of the level of international support is also evident."

Daschle stopped short of insisting that Bush must first win a Security Council resolution.


To quote the late, great Groucho Marx:


I don't know what they have to say
It makes no difference anyway
Whatever it is, I'm against it!
No matter what it is, or who commenced it
I'm against it!

Your proposition may be good
But let's have one thing understood
Whatever it is, I'm against it!
And even when you've changed it or condensed it
I'm against it!

I'm opposed to it
On general principles I'm opposed to it.
