Not that I’m in favor of going to war, but at least you would expect the Senate to take a vote on it when asked. Via Greg Sargent:
Today, the Senate is expected to authorize the funding and arming of the Syrian rebels, and then leave town without holding any vote on the broader American escalation — a striking abdication of Congressional responsibility.
In other words, the only war vote we’re getting is on the narrow question of funding the Syrian rebels. Yet even here, that vote will be stuffed in with a vote on funding the government — there won’t be any stand-alone vote on the war piece.
And then they ran for the exits like someone popped the top on a can of Ebola.
So all those butch Republicans like Lindsay Graham were all gung-ho for full scale Armageddon war on ISIS as long as they’re not the ones who actually have to vote on it.
