Caving To The Worst President Ever

The capitulation of Congress on the warrantless wiretapping issue is proof again-- that even at approval ratings in the mid-to-low 20's-- President Bush need only bark 'terrorism' and Congress will shit its pants and follow along. I really thought we were past all of this when voters made clear last November how tired they were of such timidity. Apparently, we still have a long way to go.

I'm reminded of a classic bit from the last season of 'Family Guy' where Lois, now the Mayor, tries to get the townspeople to go along with a proposal of hers. After seeing their disapproval, she then asks "what about the terrorists?" and proceeds to describe a number of insane plots, including one by Hitler and the Legion of Doom to assassinate Jesus, and another in which Darth Vader tried to buy yellowcake uranium. The townspeople immediately begin throwing piles of cash at her unquestioningly so she will save them.

Congress, you are better than just being the dimwitted residents of Quaghog.
