Got an e-mail response yesterday from Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ08) to my e-mailed howling about the lack of Congressional oversight of the FISA wiretapping mess. It was very nice, quite long, well-written. This was just about the time Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) cut a deal with the administration to "fix" FISA so that the administration's blatant lawbreaking may be rewritten for the history books as a breathtakingly prescient, cutting-edge bit of counterterrorism operations that literally rewrote how the New American Empire dealt with threats both perceived and potential. Swell. I e-mailed Roberts this morning to tell him what a wanking bastard he is. Not expecting much of a response.
The family rolls in this evening. I am neither excited nor full of trepidation. I am simply resigned. Maybe I'll blame the complicit Senate for that too. Why not?
