Senator Dodd Vows to Protect Our Civil Liberties

At least one candidate for President still believes in our Constitutional rights:

I have decided to place a “hold” on the latest FISA bill that would have included amnesty for telecommunications companies that enabled the President’s assault on the Constitution by illegally providing personal information on their customers without judicial authorization. I said that I would do everything I could to stop this bill from passing, and I have.

Something tells me that the rightwing water carriers for George Who Would Be King Bush will mount an attack on Senator Dodd’s patriotism. It’s a shame that our current President does not believe in our Constitution.

Update: Since AB reader Buffpilot is worried that the Senate will go along with what King George wants – let me turn the microphone over to Faiz who notes that those opposing what King George wants even includes at least one Republican Senator.
