Dennis! You Rock!
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Cleveland) has a piece up at Huffington Post, calling on Democrats to end U.S. involvement in the Iraq Civil War by the simple expedient of cutting off funding for military operations. He includes an interesting chart of past votes on Iraq funding, and brings up the unsuccessful lawsuit by Kucinich and others against Bill Clinton (an attempt to stop military action in Serbia as an undeclared war) for the legal point that Congressional funding equals implied consent to war.
I want the U.S. out of Iraq with all my heart. I have only two things to say about Kucinich's plan for accomplishing that:
(1) Ain't going to happen.Dennis Kucinich doesn't give a hoot for political expediency, never has. It is his great strength as a visionary, and his great liability as a politician.
(2) Kudos to Kucinich for having the audacity to demand it!
