Feingold will keep defending our Constitution…

The Great FISA Cave-In enabling immunity for lawbreaking telecoms and enshrining warrantless eavesdropping has been successfully postponed till after Independence Day so we can savor our last vestiges of liberty. Keith Olbermann last night, evidently embarrassed at being called out as an Obama shill with double standards, laid out a plan for his boy to support the new bill as announced (and hence not flip-flop) while still not letting the telcoms and Bush off the hook for all the illegal spying on US citizens [reminder – that’s since Bush took office, long before 9/11] An unlikely plan, this new one from Olbermann for Obama to save his soul. Meanwhile, the Senators defending our Fourth Amendment can literally be counted on one hand – Chris Dodd, Ron Wyden, our own marvelous B-Box, and Russ Feingold, explaining it all to you in the short video above.

Always worth reading, GLENNZILLA on recent events…
