Today, the day the FISA-gutting bill was made certain to become ‘law’ (really an officialization of lawlessness), I did pledge to give to the Strange Bedfellows money bomb
and I also made another small
contribution to the conventional FISA-gutting-accountability fund
. I pushed the total raised to $345,340; there’s still a long way to go to get to the goal of $500,000. Let’s get there!
Randi Rhodes, meanwhile, has been bamboozled totally by Obama and actually, in the process of praising Obama lovingly for the (in this context trivial) virtue of allowing anti-FISA-gutting blogs to exist at my.barackobama.com, called the comments of anti-FISA-gutting bloggers there ‘moronic’. I do not know whether one or more of the comments she was speaking about included any of mine
. I guess my comments could
be moronic, without my even realizing it, but at least I’m not letting myself be a manipulable chump, and don’t keep a drawer full of spectacles in different shades of rose.
Thom Hartmann used the words "betrayal" and "frigging" and strained to hold his tongue until tomorrow when he has had a chance to calm down. That was a good move, although Thom does have a drawer of rose-colored glasses; let’s just hope he doesn’t succumb and open that drawer.
