Well golly, we bombed Syria. I've seen various reactions from so-called "serious" people on the tweets that this is "not an act of war" and "just a pin prick" strike to "send a message" and "not let thing go unpunished" etc. etc. etc. As someone else in the twits said, suppose someone dropped 50-60 cruise missiles on the United States, would we consider it an act of war? Our exceptionalism is striking.
Meanwhile, filibuster go boom (like Syria, I guess). It would be nice to have a liberal majority on SCOTUS for once. Also, too, I think Justice Gorsuch the Destroyer is a great name, reminds me of Gozer the Gozerian. More from twitter: Dem controlled Senate confirmed Justice Thomas to replace Justice Marshall, GOP controlled senate wouldn't even give Garland a hearing to replace Scalia. But Dems ruined everything by rejecting Bork.
What else is the going on?
