    Having facts to face down the glib generalizations of Bushites is always appreciated.  One of the things that caught my attention this morning during the faux news conference was that Bush really didn't have much of an answer when confronted with the actual provisions of the acts he seeks to extend. I'm assuming this is because he gets his "news" from clips and summaries provided by the minion who aren't about to tell him things he doesn't want to hear--like facts.  The other thing that made an impression was that Bush was "horrified" by the leak of the NSA operation, but said absolutely nothing about the outing of a CIA agent. IOKIYAR.  I'm guessing that what Bush really knows about national security investigation procedure could be engraved on the head of a pin with a screwdriver; all he knows is that he wants to spy on opponents of his administration and doesn't care how his underlings do it.
