Slate on the Dems' buyer's remorse over the Wiretap bill they authorized

The Slate magazine article linked in the title to this post has handy links to articles from the New York Times, The Washington Post, and more. But the article is a nice description of why I'm pissed at the Democrats. They have the least popular President in history, and nice juicy scandals over Republicans breaching civil liberties left and right, and they still don't have the cojones to stand up and refuse to sign a bill giving away more of my civil rights. What jerks.

I too am disgusted with the Democratic leadership, despite being a life-long Democrat. What more does it take to get congressional Democrats to put up a fight? I gave a Democratic Party fundraiser a piece of my mind the other night when he unwittingly called me to ask me to contribute.

Dear Marie,
I've done that, too! The poor phone solicitors! I hope they are able to pass our cogent and biting criticisms up to where they might do some good!
