We Be Watching You

Its nice for shrub to know someone always has his back, but do they all have to behave like deranged weasels?
Is there any aspect of President Bush's miserable record on intelligence that Senator Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, is not willing to excuse and help to cover up?


Mr. Roberts had promised to hold a committee vote yesterday on whether to investigate. But he canceled the vote, and then made two astonishing announcements. He said he was working with the White House on amending the 1978 law, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, to permit warrantless spying. And then he suggested that such a change would eliminate the need for an inquiry.

Emphasis mine. Simple really. If shrub broke the law (he did) and he will continue to do so (he will), let's just change the law and sort of make it retroactive by ignoring the fact it was in force when shrub began spying on Americans without consulting the courts.

Maybe we've been wrong. Perhaps this administration truly does believe in traditional conservative principles. There's no doubt we'll have a much smaller government if we eliminate the need for the House and Senate and all their staffs along with all those silly courts.
