One of my fellow bloggers(I don't recall who it was) pointed out that even to debate over whether Fox News is biased to the right is to give credibility to the absurd position that it isn't--it's kind of like debating a flat-earther or a Holocaust revisionist.

This kind of gets to the heart of what I'm trying to say about why there shouldn't be a debate about whether or not to go to war against Syria. Debating and proving them wrong implies that the debate is worth having. I don't really believe we are going to war against Syria (although at one lovely self-deluded time I didn't think we'd really go to war against Iraq), but I am afraid of the way it might succeed in drowning out other key discussions we should be having (oh that pesky economy).
