After all the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth over the White House spying on innocent Americans, after all the calls for impeachment and howls of outrage over creeping tyranny, what did the Democrat-controlled Senate do with yesterday's opportunity to stand for freedom, justice, and the American way?
They passed the administration's spy bill which gives the President even greater authority to eavesdrop on potential terrorist communications.
Isn't it thrilling to watch people display the courage of their convictions?
Of course, passing the bill was the right thing to do. The buffoonery was in the faux outrage over the spying in the first place. It was all part of an effort to weaken the President, even at the expense of national security.
No wonder the term "principled politicians" has become an alliterative oxymoron.RLC
