You know, I wonder if the Republicans in the House or Senate have some scandalous photos of Nancy Pelosi having sex with a goat that they are threatening to reveal in order to end her career? Maybe they have tape of Steny Hoyer and Harry Reid sharing a ‘fuzzy navel’ at some gay bar somewhere.
I mean, it must be one of these things right?
Only this can explain why the Democrats in Congress are so willing to roll over and take continual kicks to the stomach and the ass from a lame-duck President, and a Republican minority in Congress, whom by all accounts, should get their head handed to them in the next election.
The so-called compromise on the FISA bill, which was finalized last Friday and can be viewed here…is nothing short of total capitulation, to borrow a phrase from Russ Feingold, by a Democratic majority that seems content on giving this administration any sort of nonsense legislation it wants. The FISA bill by all accounts, will have catastrophic effects on our civil liberties and economic well being, for years. The true depth of the damage is almost too colossal to comprehend.
I’d like to underscore the fact that in 2006, when the Congress was controlled by the likes of Bill Frist and Denny Hastert, the Bush administration tried to get a bill passed legalizing warrantless eavesdropping and amnesty for telecoms – that effort failed in a Republican controlled Congress. They had to wait until the Congress was controlled by Steny Hoyer, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and a slew of spineless Democrats of similar ilk, to accomplish that astounding feat.
I guess I’m a bit perplexed as to how this qualifies as a compromise at all? It seems odd how this “compromise,” smells just like all of the other ‘nod-nod-wink-wink’ passages of Iraq war funding, and the Military Commissions Act, and the Protect America Act, and every other “compromise” in which the Democrats engage. In the end, it seems more like forced anal rape of the constitution than anything else.
And the Democrats keep rolling along…
