I know that it's not kosher to call someone an idiot but you must forgive me a moment of sophomoric ill manners.
For the past few days I've been listening to stories about Senate Democrats' efforts to amend the unconstitutional FISA Act, which will extend the government's claim to unlimited powers to spy on its citizens into the indefinite future (efforts which have failed miserably - the Senate voted to extend the act without amendment 73-23). In her response to efforts to hold the government to even a fig leaf of due process, Ms. Feinstein claimed that we need not fear that the government would abuse its police powers and that we shouldn't concern ourselves with the patent loss of our civil rights.
Because, you know, our police forces have never - never - abused their authority.
And that's just from the last week.
This is why I wrote that I loathed this woman in my last post.
