And I Thought Only Democrats Fed on Themselves

But apparently even some Republicans in Congress have begun to get a tad upset over the administration's use of the US Constitution as a napkin.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican from South Carolina: "When I voted for it, I never envisioned that I was giving to this president or any other president the ability to go around FISA carte blanche."

Three Republicans - Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Olympia Snowe of Maine and Mike DeWine of Ohio— will probably vote with Democrats to demand more info from the administration on these programs.

And as today's game of who told what to whom and when, Gonzales testified that a "bipartisan group of leaders" was consulted in 2004 as to whether or not to make a new law, the consensus was that they couldn't offer legislation on it without exposing the secret taps. And while the administration can point fingers all they like at the Dems who say they weren't fully informed, what do they do when it's one of their own? (Republican representive and new GOP chair of House Intelligence Committee, Peter Hoekstra said that the issue never came up when he got his briefing by Cheney in 2004.

Guess nobody told Hoekstra or Graham that Cheney & crew intend to use their warrantless wiretap history to win votes for Republican candidates in the fall campaign.

Don't you get it Republicans? Your bosses think people will jump up and down with enthusiasm for them spitting on the constitution as long as they keep saying "who Bin Laden is calling in the US" enough times.

So the question is -- are you as dumb as the Republicans think you are, American public?
