Chris Dodd, Constitutionalist?

I'll have some final thoughts on the 6.1 million that Dr. Paul raised today in a later post. But I just wanted to throw this up there. Pilfered from Daily Kos, via the Crossed Pond:

The latest word from the Dodd camp regarding what will happen on the FISA bill is that tomorrow, Dodd will take the floor and not yield.

He can take "questions" from other senators during the filibuster, which can be no more than 20 minutes. We understand that Kennedy and Feingold so far have agreed to do this.

Let's hope Feingold and Kennedy have some good twenty-two-part questions of their own. And let's also hope that they won't be the only senators supporting Dodd.

And this is also where we come in. I've been told by the Dodd folks that the Senator wants to know what we think he should read during the filibuster. So please suggest anything you think might be relevant to the issue of retroactive telecom immunity - speeches, articles, even your own comments, diaries or blog posts. Dodd staffers will undoubtedly be checking the comments here for good ideas, and you could wind up having your own thoughts read aloud on the floor of the United State Senate.

This is our chance to stand with Dodd and stand up for the Constitution. Let's do our best to help him - he's going to have a lot of time to fill. And to urge your senators to join in, click here.
