Saturday Night Shame // Open Thread

by paradox

I see that the House has approved Bush’s FISA bill 15 minutes ago—it’s 7:55 Pacific now.

I hadn’t even thought such a thing was remotely possible 72 hours ago—there is no excuse for such a rushed law. There isn’t any excuse for any of it.

I’m sorry, gentle people. This is one of the worst days for the Republic I have ever witnessed, and I am truly ashamed to be a Democrat. I’ll be re-evaluating my party status very soon. My Democracy Bond will be voided in precisely 17 hours.

Please be well. I wish I had something positive to say, but there isn’t anything. The structure of our government and republic has completely failed, and I don't know if we'll ever live to see it restored.
