Wow! Democrats voting for warrantless wiretapping? The Senate voted 60 to 28 for the bill that just passed. The House went for it by 214 to 177. In both votes it was Democrats who put the wiretapping bill over the top. President Bush signed it yesterday.
So the Dems have made warrantless wiretapping work by Federal legislation, not just by the inherent powers of the President. This wildly contradicts what they have been telling the faithful back home.
What's going on?
For at least a year the media gunned for George W. Bush's hide for supposedly violating the privacy of Americans. Which is completely corkscrewed, of course, because those wiretaps are for overseas phone calls with AQ goons, who are not protected by US law.
Are the netroots going ape? They should be. Their own politicians are now legitimizing old Bushitler. Everything the Left has raged about like so many Holy Rollers now turns out to be a sham.
So what is really going on?
Eli Lake in the NY Sun gives a pretty good reason for the earthquake.
This is serious news for saner folks. But it's exactly what the Left has been denying at the top of their voices ever since 1993, when the first Twin Towers truck-bombing took place --- courtesy of New York City's friendly local Qaeda cell. The Left has been asking "What terror threat?" for all these years, while masked thugs with AK 47's were showing us their intentions on TV.
Well, on Friday the Democrats got it. At least privately. Obviously they're trying to cover it up by blaming on a few Blue Dog defectors. But that doesn't explain the lopsided vote in the Democrat Senate. Harry Reid could have blocked the vote in the Senate with a filibuster. But he didn't, because Hillary and the gang finally figured out who would get blamed if we have another 9/11.
It looks like the Dems will happily undermine America's defense, but not if they're going to be caught in the crosshairs when the next balloon goes up.
Let's all hope the Kossicles are foaming at the mouth, out there in cyberspace.
Welcome to reality, kids.
