After sitting here wallowing in despair and frustration about FISA, and our ‘quaint and outdated’ fourth amendment, it was such a relief to hear Chris Dodd and Russ Feingold speak up today. Dodd eloquently said what so many Americans are thinking, and what so few of their elected representatives are. He spoke for two hours on the floor of the senate today. If you have 5 minutes and 32 seconds, settle in and listen to a patriot.
Gee, I wonder how Stevens and Murkowski will vote? I emailed them both. Not because I think it will change anything, but watching Chris Dodd reminded me that sometimes it’s just about saying what needs to be said. So, a virtual pat on the back and a big thank you to Senator Dodd from a few thousand miles away.
