Iran deal quick take...

Iran deal quick take...  Iran: celebrating.  Obama: putting lipstick on the pig.  Congress: WTF?  Arabia: fearful.  Israel: “An historic mistake.”

Doesn't sound too good to me.  In particular, when Obama says “every path to a nuclear weapon has been cut off”, all my natural skepticism cuts in.  My brain translates that to “Iran’s gonna get a nuke, we just don’t know whether its next month, or next year.”

Will our Congress approve it?  I'd like to think there will be a substantive debate, and if the deal is as I fear it is, then they'd reject it.  Given the political context, though, I don't think that's too likely.  Approval isn't quite a certainty, but it's darned close to it.  The only thing I can think of that might derail approval is a mighty roar from the American public – and what is far more likely is a mighty yawn...
