Hoyer Comes Out For Constitution

In a speech, that is, but hopefully from now on in actions. Lambert notes at Corrente that the House Majority Leader spoke favorably of restoring habeas corpus and denying telecom companies immunity for illegal wiretapping.

These days, supporting the Constitution and the rule of law has become a very high bar which many of the highest officeholders in the land can't seem to manage to jump. When they do support it, it's like Christmas. Gods, what we've come to.

If you click over to the post, Lambert included Hoyer's office number so you can call and thank him for talking like a real American patriot. You know, someone who understands that oaths of service in this country are sworn to the defense of the Constitution of the United States of America.

"My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total." - Barbara Jordan, July 25, 1974, at Richard Nixon's impeachment hearing.

Update: Tell the Senate Judiciary Committee that you want them to support the Constitution and the rule of law. Go to No Retroactive Immunity and sign the petition.
