A Democrat Shows Some Fucking Stones (UPDATED AGAIN!)

January 27, 2008

Chris Dodd is sacking the fuck up:

President Bush wants to shut down courts whose rulings he doesn’t like; last night, Senate Republicans showed that when they don’t like the outcome of a debate, they’ll shut that down, too.

It’s one thing for a president to express that kind of contempt for the process of legislation. It’s another for the members legislative branch to express it themselves.

[T]his is about far more than the telecoms. This is about the choice that will define America: the rule of law, or the rule of men.

Chris Dodd is a fucking patriot. Tell your Senators to stop sucking telecom cock and start backing Dodd’s filibuster. A “no” vote on cloture tomorrow would be a good opportunity for Democrats to demonstrate that they have not forgotten who their bosses are.

Hey, asshole! Over here! I’m your fucking boss!! Not AT&T!

(h/t Glenn Greenwald and his commenter Kitt.)

UPDATE: Christy Hardin Smith has a post up at Firedoglake with phone and fax numbers for Senators whose votes are still up in the air. Let these fucking quislings know that We The People are their bosses!

UPDATE 2: Dems sacked up! Vote is no on cloture, so Dodd’s filibuster threat suffices to prevent a vote on the Senate Intelligence Cmte version of the FISA amendment (the sucky one, with telecom immunity), and maybe allow the Senate Judiciary Comte version (the less sucky one, without telecom immunity). Let’s hope these assholes have finally figured out who their fucking bosses are!

For details of the consequences of all this shit, and what happens next (it sure ain’t over), go read Glenn Greenwald; he knows what the fuck he’s talking about.

    I’ve written and called, but one senator is up to his eyes in the AG firings, one rep wrote the law that got rid of habeas corpus and another wants to sell all public land to private corporations. They’re like a pack of rabid dogs, driven to a frenzy to finish the kill before they get driven from power. And the Dems are too busy groveling in the hopes of mythical bipartisanship to defend the constitution. Fuck ‘em all.
