    Wonder who will be Obama's Yoo?   Just "interpret" the War Powers Act to mean what you want it to mean.

    Here I was about to suggest that, if Congress wanted to have a say, they should just repeal the War Powers Act, then threaten to impeach Obama if he starts yet another war.  Silly me.  The WPA is already clear about presidential authority, while (most of) Congress is just as jingoist as ever.

    Which doesn't mean that the GOP won't call for impeachment (still) after the fact.
