Darcy on FISA

Via Eschaton, Darcy Burner has something to say about the FISA travesty.

As Howard Cosell used to say, that's telling it like it is. No use mincing words, the Democrats who voted for it (and all but two Republicans) have voted to usurp the Bill of Rights.

Funny thing about the Constitution: it still exists, even when Blue Dogs and Republicans stamp their grubby, corrupt feet all over it. There are plenty of us who remember the Constitution, and what it stands for. People who swear oaths to defend it and then do things like the FISA bill have no business being entrusted with anything.

Ironically, of course, when they trample the Constitution, the terrorists win. So good on Burner for stating the plain truth.
