Open Thread

Yes, the GOP senators got rolled again by Shooter on the NSA mess; they caved. Read Eriposte's link below and the Post piece in Wednesday's paper to find out how Olympia Snowe, Mike DeWine (after a Bush fundraiser), and Chuck Hagel have all backed down from supporting an inquiry into the NSA mess. If anything, DeWine now wants to make the NSA transgressions legal retroactively, as some of us suspected the GOP would do.

The fact remains that polls tell us that at least 49% of respondents are opposed to the warrantless spying Bush has been conducting, and this will be one more issue in the Democrats' assault upon the "rubber-stamp" GOP congress this fall.

OK, your turn.
