How the patriots got their mo' back

The momentum to filibuster the conference committee's Patriot Act renewal bill is gaining steam. In the last 24 hours, The Civil Liberties Six (Feingold, Durbin, Salazar, Sununu, Murkowski, Craig) have been joined by Senators Chuck Hagel (R-Neb), John Kerry (D-Mass), and Barack Obama (D-Ill). These three signed on to a "Dear Colleague" letter expressing disappointment with the conference report.

Today the AP is reporting that Senator Dianne Feinstein, a co-sponsor of the original Patriot Act, is backing the filibuster.

It's on. It is so on.

Aside from just being plain creepy, bet you didn't know that about the ACLU.

Know what about the ACLU? Sorry, but nothing in that was true. We're not anti-Christian - in fact, many of our staff are regular church-goers. We've also defended a number of Christians' right to freely practice their religion. You should read this editorial http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/newssentinel/news/editorial/13311367.htm

Sorry, I was trying to be ironic: I was betting you didn't realize that you were "anti-christian." Just thought you'd like to know what these psychos were saying about you.

Anonymous, if you looked at the recent postings on the blog, you'd see that they are well aware of the "anti-Christian" tag.

Anonymous, I usually catch ironic and sarcastic humor but missed it that time. I thought you were trolling. Sorry about that. Yes, it's creepy
