This is a new idea to me. I mean, yeah, anything Congress passes, Congress can rescind. But it's sort of like the suggestion to repeal the 2nd amendment...that's a new idea to me as a political goal. There are two parts to this question. One is, is it a good idea? I don't want to write too much so as to let the discussion go where it will go, but my sense is that yes, we should rescind it, because a whole bunch of batshit insane stuff is justified in the name of the AUMF. I think if we rescind it, we would make those initiatives stand on their own merits, and either continue or stop accordingly. Further, I think it would be good for the soul of America for once, just once, to take a step backward in our march toward Spartadom. The other part is, is it a good idea politically for progressives to push for this. (Because let's face it, conservatives aren't going to push for it, and libertarians have nowhere near enough power to get it on the table, let alone accomplish the task.) I suspect that Chris Hayes might be talking about it this weekend on Up because I saw a tweet on the topic on Maddowblog when I was reading up on Fox News' explanation as to why Germany is stronger than the US in solar power. (For details, see the Fox News Makes You Stupid thread.) So...is it a good idea to repeal the AUMF? And is it a worthy goal for progressives to invest time and energy into?
