Surprise surprise. The Democratic party, eager to once again surrender to the GOP, has completely caved in on FISA, giving Bush everything he wanted, including telecom immunity. Excuse me while I vomit in my mouth.
And just to make sure that all hope is smothered out of me, Barrack Obama has made sure to also surrender. I'd be more pissed than just depressed if I didn't also know that Hillary Clinton would have been equally mealy-mouthed on this. The only thing that could cheer me up now is to see both candidates unequivocally object to this, dragging along the Democratic Senate into stopping this atrocity. They need to call a press conference and make this front-page news. They have the power. They could stop it. But no, they are going to surrender.
I hope I can get the nasty taste out of my mouth. Excuse me while I go find a glass of water.
