Sheldon Adelson Wants To Help Obama With This Whole Syria Vote Thing, Apparently

As our national debate over how little we can get away with doing in response to the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons while still being able to credibly say that we've done something rages, we have apparently entered the "another county heard from" stage of the discussion. I say this because, for some reason, billionaire casino mogul and quixotic campaign donor Sheldon Adelson has shown up on the scene, and he says he's ready "to roll up his sleeves and help Obama" with this whole Syria thing. In an interview with the National Journal, Adelson said, "I would be willing to help out the administration because I believe it's the right thing to do. He is our only -– we don't have any other commander in chief." Presumably, he looked around for another one, at the sports book or something, but came up short.
