Virginia's Own Senator Grandstand

It seems that Senator Jim Webb (D-Macaca) is introducing legislation to prevent an attack on Iran.

This is a little nonsensical, since the Administration has hardly kept Congress out of the decisionmaking process, having sought --- and received --- congressional authorization for the missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

There's nothing like a little grandstanding from a Senator so otherwise lacking in substance. I suppose that it's a little better than passing non-binding, ineffectual resolutions in the place of exercise of actual constitutional authority.

But not by much.
