So, Let Me Get This Straight…

So, let me get this straight: instead of using our limited law enforcement resources to do surveillance domestically on potential terrorist cells and possible supporters, we instead have the FBI spying on lesbians, vegans and advocates for the poor?

Wow, talk about your enormous security threat. What are they going to do, make me sing Indigo Girls medleys, eat raw carrots and clothe the homeless? Oh, the horror.

The NYTimes has more. The level of incompetence of this Administration continues to amaze me. (TalkLeft has more.)

UPDATE: William Arkin’s Early Warning blog is a great read again today. Just FYI.
