Just read Bush pushes for Patriot Act renewal
and started thinking how important it is for the 'Act' to continue
since it provides an awful lot of wiggle room for this imperial _resident to escape oversight, and possibly even impeachment, for the NSA wiretapping he has already 'fessed up to.
It also fits in well with Bush in general, since it gives him a very clear goal that he must achieve in a month (since his attention span is measured in seconds, I suspect anything over a month is stretching it for the dim son).
So we need to turn it up to 11. We really need to make sure everyone realizes what this will mean for the future, for all parts of the political spectrum.
For instance, suppose a Democrat, perhaps even the Anti-Christ herself, Senator Clinton, (to the wingnuts she's the devil. I am disappointed in some of her decisions and votes and statements, but she's still on our side of the aisle for most issues) were to win a Presidential election; would the people who right now are supposedly in favor of domestic spying being so gung ho about it under her?
My suggestion is simply to start asking EVERYONE "would you trust Hillary with domestic spying without FISA approval?"
It may even be unnerving to point out that in most cases, Senator Clinton has supported the "Patriot Act" and since tinfoil hats fit on right-wingers too, maybe some of them can start their own worry games on their side.
But hey, we have only a month to defeat this insane doublespeak set of laws which has prvided cover for one of the most corrupt administrations this nation has ever endured.
And may Saint Hillary take the throne someday soon and banish the NeoCon Death Cult to some gulag in Mena, Arkansas.
