Republican Admits FISA is Not Helping the GOP

assfromelbow.jpgTucked away in this Depressed Republicans article comes this graf, just before the end (emphasis added):

The GOP has pummeled swing-district Democrats for refusing to back President Bush’s update of counterterrorism surveillance laws and for last week’s budget agreements that will allow most, if not all, of Bush’s tax cuts to expire in 2011. Davis said the issues are not getting political traction now, but they could before November.

Can someone please have Tom Davis call Jay Rockefeller with the news?

Aw, hell. Why not go tell Jello Jay yourself? Please be sure to use your best Sunday manners.

Pachacutec

Pachacutec

Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
