The Fix

I'm still chewing on this FISA thing, the orchestration and direction was very subtle; all the actors have come and gone upon the stage like pros, not the usual case in Washington D.C.

What can't be hidden, even if unsaid, is that this Democratic Congress is more of a lame duck than George W. (Feckless Leader) Bush.

The Democratic leadership caved. They ran and hid, and let the 10 Southern/BlueDog Senators take the walk.

Why did they cave? Threats and blackmail is what I suspect. The goal of empire is internal power, foreign policy becomes only a means to the prize. As the forms of law and tradition blur, power passes to individuals who grasp the prize and use all means to secure it.
