I have to give credit where credit is due. The left is always harping on the erosion of civil liberties in this country and on this I agree with them. Chris Dodd and his stand on telecom immunity which is 100% correct (pilfered from the commie pinko socialists at Openleft):
Few things are more detrimental to this country than the erosion of and attack on the civil liberties we enjoy. This isn’t a Democratic issue or a Republican issue; this is an American issue. If after debate, the Senate appears ready to pass legislation granting telecom providers retroactive immunity I will use any and all legislative tools at my disposal, including a filibuster, to prevent this deeply flawed bill from becoming law. More and more, Americans are rejecting the false choice that has come to define this administration: security or liberty, but never, ever both. For all those who have stood with me throughout this fight, I pledge, once more, to stand up for you.
