Never have so many people, of such ignorance, had so much power.

My main interest has been in the White House policy towards Iraq, so it was not until I listened to the Senate yesterday that I understood how much the rules would be, have been, permanently changed by the vote last night.

It angers and saddens me that it can be argued Clinton and Schumer voted the way they did because of the Jewish vote. Schumer is terrible on Israel, and this may reflect his personal beliefs rather than simply his politics, for obvious reasons. And I don't doubt the accusations against Clinton: of her making racist, anti-jewish, comments in an argument 30 years ago, so maybe it's 50/50 (30 years is and is not a long time.) Regardless of whether their decisions were sincere or cynical, they were equally nearsighted, immoral, and stupid.

Carter, by the way is a famous misanthrope. He's been pushing for years for a Nobel and every year that he hasn't gotten it he's had a fit. If anyone can be said consistently to do the right thing for the wrong reasons, it's Carter. He's a piece of work.
