“Pasadena-area Congressman Adam Schiff is reportedly planning a run for the United States Senate, according to Politico. Californians ought to have at least filter on any potential Senate candidates: if a politician voted for the war in Iraq, they shouldn’t be rewarded with higher office. Schiff, who voted to authorize George W. Bush’s war in Iraq, fails that standard. … Schiff’s defenders will say that was a long time ago. An indiscretion. We all make mistakes, like voting to kill hundreds of thousands of people and waste trillions of dollars over lies, I suppose. Well, I don’t care if it was five years ago or 20 years ago. A vote for the Iraq war is a disqualifying stain on the record of every lawmaker who didn’t have the wisdom of California Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters and Hilda Solis to oppose the war.” (11/18/22)
