Burner nails Reichert and FISA Democrats

Darcy Burner has a new web ad that calls out not only Dave Reichert but "FISA Democrats" on their usurpation of the Constitution. David Goldstein quoted some text from the web ad:
“When Republicans like Dave Reichert give George Bush everything he wants, that’s bad enough. But too many people in my own party aren’t listening either. The warrantless wiretapping bill won’t make us safer, but it will strip us of the rights so many of our families have fought to preserve, including mine.”
Anyone who has been paying attention the last seven years knows that progressives have always faced not only an uphill battle against Republicans, but against certain types of lame-brained and authoritarian Democrats as well. So it's great that Burner is telling it like it is.

There's still a long way to go to change the Democratic Party. But we don't really have much choice. The Constitution is our birthright. It doesn't matter what party you belong to, if you usurp the Constitution you will be opposed.
