    Defeat.

    Some House Democrats were prepared to support immunity, regardless. In a Jan. 28 letter, 21 Democrats in the conservative Blue Dog Coalition sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., supporting immunity and listing other provisions that they believed were needed in a FISA bill.

      And the fucking politicians wonder why WE THE PEOPLE are so pissed.  And yet, they can't see it even though it's right under their noses.  Well here's to hoping we can launch some progressive challengers against the congress critters who keep voting against our interests and instead, support corporate welfare and immunity.  

      Practice random acts of kindness.

        they're so entrenched in their comfy world.  Our only recourse is primary, primary, primary.  We have to find enough "regular" or "common" people willing to stand up to them.  We can fund them enough to get it understood that a primary WILL happen, and get the issues talked about.
