If George W Bush refers to a piece of legislation as a "good bill," one can safely assume that it's horseshit.
Keith Olberman on FISA
My view on Ted Kennedy has long been that Democrats need to find some new talent. But here he has it right on the money.
The President has said that American lives will be sacrificed if Congress does not change FISA. But he has also said that he will veto any FISA bill that does not grant retroactive immunity. No immunity, no FISA bill. So if we take the President at his word, he's willing to let Americans die to protect the phone companies.
Let alone that there's no fucking way the precedent for warrantless wiretapping should be upheld, because those implications are fucking terrifying.
Speaking of bullshit on the House floor, Clemens much? I wonder if any baseball fans will be mindful of the Republican whitewashing of a steroid abuser when they go to the ballot box this coming November. Those fuckers fawned over him while he stood accused of perjury.
Also, and this is a couple of days late, congrats to the WGA. Though I really wish those guys would do something to change the fact that to get your foot in the door in a writer's room you need to be willing and able to work for free and live in New York or LA on Daddy's money.
