Tonight at 7, Senator Johnny Isakson will appear on Hardball with Chris Matthews at the top of the hour to discuss the Authorization of Military Force submitted to Congress by President Obama. Therefore, I’m obliged to say something few people ever say- turn on MSNBC.
Last time the President proposed a wacky Syria adventure, Senator Isakson opposed it. That was in 2013, when American interests were irrevocably set against ISIS’s enemy, the government of Bashar al-Assad. (I often root against both the Red Sox and the Yankees, so I understand the sentiment.) Perhaps Congress will be impressed by the President’s gracious request for approval of a war he entered six months ago. We’ll find out where Senator Isakson stands tonight.
