I'm trying not to do politics so much, because a million blogs do it more faithfully, but I'm not sure a lot of people readArms and influence and I really like the way Kingdaddy puts it:

"Our Constitution survived when the British burned the White House, half the country tried to secede, we were fighting in both the Pacific and European theaters of WWII simultaneously (and don't forget the pro-Nazi bunds that were a quite real 'enemy within'), and the Soviet Union had thousands of nuclear weapons pointed at us. We also went to the brink of nuclear war in 1962, an event to which I'll devote some attention in coming posts. At no time did the President claim the sort of powers that George W. Bush believes are necessary to prevent another group of hijackers from getting lucky."
