    Speaking of spineless Democrats...

    (My bold.)

    What the hell happened? This thing was at death's door just a month ago, and now it gets a 95-1 extension and some half-assed compromises. We need to write some very angry letters to our Democratic senators and representatives. :mad:

    Yeah, I saw this this morning.

    I was told it was DOA a couple of weeks ago.

    Heh.

    Feingold has been the one bright spot lately. He's almost taken on the mantle of Paul Wellstone.

    Plus, an extension rather than renewal is still a loss for the President. But you gotta figure that the Dems, after being beaten badly in the last two elections with the national security issue, are going to be a little gun-shy when it comes to putting themselves on the line such that their GOP opponent can use their vote against the PATRIOT Act against them this November.

    Even so, only a third should be up for re-election this year...
