I get to the FISA issue. What can I say about it that hasn't been said already? While the House of Representatives can take a couple of hours off from issuing contempt of Congress citations (or whatever it is they're doing) to Josh Bolton and Harriet Miers, and lobbing stupid questions at doping baseball players and their enablers, they couldn't take the time to even take the Senate's Protect America Act up to give it an up or down vote.
So the authority to determine the necessity to surveil terror suspects now rests with a bunch of Carter appointees. Everyone who is comfortable with the prospect of a bunch of judges appointed by a president whose idea of a fair election is Venezuela, raise your hands.
The dearth of hands is telling.
