Note to Senators — you people make me sick. No guts, no principles.
The context of these comments is the vote today that granted immunity from prosecution to telecommunications companies that in all likelihood illegally threw their networks open for wiretapping, even before 9/11.
Ten Democrats and no Republicans stood up for the Constitution. 76 others voted for cloture to end Senator (and Presidential candidate) Chris Dodd’s filibuster of the bill. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama didn’t show up to vote.
Update: The bill is off the table until next year, thanks to Chris Dodd.
