Door? What door?

I caught a piece on NPR this morning about congressclowns who are concerned that Obama doesn’t have the authority to launch a “humanitarian mission” in Libya without congressional approval.  Nevermind this tired charade about whether this or that is “constitutional.”  Nobody fucking cares about the constitution; it’s a museum piece with no authority over anything.  The thing that got me, though, was when the reporter said that some congressman (from Massachusetts, I think) was worried that this might “open the door” to other foreign interventions in the future.  Open the door?  The door’s wide open.  No, wait, they got rid of that door years ago.  In fact, now that I think about it, the building is gone, too.
