I Hope I Never Do This Again

But just for this once, I hope anyway, I’m going to post a straight quote from RedState today… because it’s the only thing I think I’ve ever seen from them that I agree with.

They’re winding up FISA now in the Senate. Took ’em long enough.

By Moe Lane

There were two Senators who were serious Democratic Presidential candidates, and they both voted on FISA. One of them voted against telecom immunity – a matter of extreme importance to the netroots – all the way down the line (and despite the fact that Democrats in Congress have assessed the public mood, and have clearly decided that the bill must be passed). The other voted against it… except for the final vote, which is the only one that the population will actually care about. In other words, we have a case of actual integrity versus equivocation.

The funny part is that the netroots went with the equivocator. Barack Obama brazenly lied to them about his intent to filibuster FISA, and they support him anyway. And now they have to go give him some more money, so that he can lie to them some more. Funny, I don’t recall Hillary Clinton being nearly as bad in that regard this election cycle.

Have a nice day.


…And Reid is recessing, in order to let the GOP go have its (delayed by the Helms funeral) lunch. Isn’t he just the best, most biddable Democratic Senate Majority Leader that the GOP could wish for?

I could use a drink.

Anyone else?

  1. It turns out that Obama did not cave!


    It’s time to put the “Obama Caved On FISA” talk to an end.

    The FISA bill is obviously imperfect, but I do not believe that a serious Presidential candidate can afford to vote “no” on legislation that is intended to help prevent terrorist attacks.
