    Last I heard, children cross fingers either to wish or to lie, and it’s not clear to me which one is implied (or maybe some of both?).


    After all, unlike the Saudi Wahabbi Islam that is strictly peaceful, non-violent, vegan, and civilised, the Iranian religion is that of a bunch of nomads who only spread terrorism and who want to destroy everything that was not blessed by their so-called prophet, who has been condemned by the Wahabbis, who are the only True Muslims.

    Its the rest of the world hoping the republicans don’t blow things up again.

    How The Iran Vote Is Engineered To Pass by the Republican Congress.

    Corker has known for some time that the president and the United Nations were on their way to approving the Iran agreement. “Once the president has made a deal with all these other nations, endorsed by the U.N. Security Council,” said Ornstein, “if Congress votes to block it, it’s not going to look good for anybody — the country or them. So, you find a way to make it work.”

    They found a way within the arcane rules of congressional voting — borrowing an old mechanism used in civilian nuclear agreements.

    Here’s how it works. Instead of voting on whether to approve the Iran deal, Congress votes on whether to disapprove.

    If they disapprove, the president can veto their disapproval. And under the normal rules, it would take two-thirds of the House and the Senate to override the veto. That makes all the difference.

    “It is a mechanism by which lawmakers can deal with the contradictions that reality presents them. You can call it cynical, you can call it pragmatic, but it gets the job done,” Elving said, “both in the sense of keeping the government going forward and in the sense of solving the political problem of the individual lawmaker.”

    This happens more often than you might think. Consider a story we heard recently from Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, a Tea Party favorite and presidential candidate.
    He told us about a Senate Republican lunch in 2014 where party leaders planned to change the voting rules for an increase in the federal debt ceiling.

    “That Tuesday lunch began with our leadership saying, ’We’re asking every Republican senator here to affirmatively consent to lower the threshold to take up the debt ceiling, from 60 votes to 50 votes,’ " he said.

    What is this 4-panel cartoon about? Who is caricatured?

    The comments seem to bear no relationship to this cartoon but do fit yesterdays (hands raised – fingers crossed).
