Even though "Loony Left" is more alliterative...

...the Right certainly has their share of whackos, too. Check out this article from the Nashua Telegraph in New Hampshire.

Ms. Maxwell is wrong about President Bush lacking the legal authority to order an attack on Iran or Syria. He most certainly can under the War Powers Resolution of 1973. According to Wikipedia:

...the War Powers Resolution require the President to consult with Congress prior to the start of any hostilities as well as regularly until U.S. armed forces are no longer engaged in hostilities (Sec. 3); and to remove U.S. armed forces from hostilities if Congress has not declared war or passed a resolution authorizing the use of force within 60 days.

That much is clear. What's really hysterical is this phrase:

...and that radioactive fallout from the use of nuclear weapons in any such attack would endanger people around the world, including herself.

I have not read any suggestion, anywhere (and I tend to follow these things pretty closely), that the United States is considering using nuclear weapons against either Iran or Syria.

What's really sad is that woman's vote is worth the same as mine.
