Jon Soltz Obliterates Melanie Morgan

First off, Jon Soltz (VoteVets.org) didn't need any more help to make himself ridiculously hot and sexy - but this clip wins, hands down. I've been loath to bring up Melanie Morgan (R-Cuntasia) as I lump her in with the Malkin/Coultermort crowd of vile cuntness. I couldn't find a decent clip of her News Hour appearance that had her banned from ever appearing on that program again, but have found this one which illustrates why very clearly. You cannot go on a respectable program that actually supports real news and journalistic values with a Fox News mentality and set of behavioral standards. I only wish the media at large would hold to the same standard.

This is broken into 2 parts, wach them both - it's only about 10 minutes or so. She consistently interrupts him, casting aspersions and taking nonsensical digs and practically swallows her own tongue when he bests her. Plus, he's smokin' hot.

Soltz Lays the Smack Down On Morgan, Pt. 1

Shame Indeed

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) says it all.
House Passes Bush’s FISA Law - American Civil Liberties Destroyed
It’s official, George Bush and Alberto Gonzales now have the legal authority to spy on you and I without a warrant at any time. The vote was as follows:

Yea:227 Nay:183

There were a number of Democrats who voted for President Bush and against the American people and our civil liberties. Here’s the final House vote tally (Senate here) . It’s unlikely there’s anyone around in our representatives’ offices at this time, but you can find their contact information here.

Nancy Pelosi has written a letter to John Conyers asking him to amend the FISA bill:
Speaker Pelosi said that S. 1927, the bill passed tonight by the House to temporally amend FISA for six-months, after H.R. 3356, the Improving Foreign Intelligence Surveillance to Defend Our Nation and Our Constitution Act bill failed last night, contains many provisions that are unacceptable and she does not believe that the American people will want to wait that long before corrective action is taken. In a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Silvestre Reyes, Speaker Pelosi requested that the Committees report to the House “as soon as possible after Congress reconvenes,” legislation to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
Here is the text of the letter.
