'Tis A Beautiful Thing...

by tristero

... when the august New York Times sounds like a common blogger:
What Mr. Bush wants is to be able to listen to your international telephone calls and read your international e-mail whenever he wants, without a court being able to prevent it or judge the legality of his actions...

The president will continue to claim the country is in grave danger over this issue, but it is not. The real danger is for Mr. Bush. A good law — like the House bill — would allow Americans to finally see the breathtaking extent of his lawless behavior.
That last sentence is not entirely accurate, but nevermind. I mean, Americans have always been able to see a great deal of the breathtaking extent of Bush's lawless behavior. It's just that media outlets like...well, like the New York Times itself, never reported the lawlessness in such a fashion as to sound the alarm if they reported it at all.

Anyway, better late than never.
