Hilzoy to Democrats: Grow A Spine!

Tell it, sister:

[T]his is not about "distaste". Our objections to allowing the administration to listen in on us without warrants is not aesthetic. It concerns some of the most fundamental principles in our Constitution, and the freedoms we take for granted as Americans. Distaste has nothing to do with it.
The full post really is worth reading. I'm continually baffled why the Democrats act as if it's still 1996 and they've just been repudiated at the polls. These are fundamental principles, and no one seems to care that they're being shredded. The Democrats seem terrified that if they don't give the regime Administration everything it wants, they'll be called names or something. Not realizing, apparently, that the people who voted them into office in large numbers in 2006 want them to do something, and want them to stand up for principle.

It shouldn't need to be said, but apparently it does: Hey, people...we've got your back. Now go do what we sent you there to do. The sooner the better.
