My FISA Valentine

House Democrats have spines. Who knew? Well, okay, we were all secretly hoping. Really, really hoping.

Though we had particularly snark letters at the ready if they didn't. Just imagine how glad we are that we didn't have to send them.

It was a nice Valentine to the country, standing up for our Constitution. They refused the president's reckless attempt to manufacture a crisis, or standing idly by ignoring contempt.

So, no immunity for telecom lawbreakers. No trying to hide this completely for the Bush administration.

It was a good day to be a Democrat.
