Police State 2 Freedom 0, Bottom of the 9th

Washington Post: House, Senate Republicans reach deal on Patriot Act

Thankfully, the power hitters in the Senate still get a swing of the bat.

Freedom's big sticks are the Civil Liberties Six, who issued a statement today:
Bipartisan group of Senators respond to Patriot Act conference report

And National ACLU weighed in.

The timing of today's ACLU-PA op-ed in The Patriot News is, well...I don't know what to say about this: Specter key to common sense on Patriot Act

Let's be clear: This game is not over. (Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!) This unconstitutional reauthorization of the Patriot Act has yet to be passed. Call your senators and representative today! Ask your Congressional representatives to support true reform of the Patriot Act, not the conference committee's stomping on our freedom. No to the committee's bill! Yes to freedom!

Ummm...I'm pretty sure it was the Japanese who bombed Pearl Harbor.

Yes, I am pretty sure they were Japanese - unless there was a later bombing involving Dorniers/Heinkels....

I think it was a joke - the way that the Bush administration is always linking Iraq to 9/11.

Oy vey. The germans bombing Pearl Harbor is a quote from Animal House.

I thought it was very funny. Well done.

No, actually it was aliens who escaped from a secret underground fortress in New Mexico. I've seen the pictures.
