Telecom Immunity Passes

What happened?

The Senate voted Tuesday to shield from lawsuits telecommunications companies that helped the government eavesdrop on their customers without court permission after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

After nearly two months of stops and starts, the Senate rejected by a vote of 31 to 67 a move to strip away a grant of retroactive legal immunity for the companies.

Heh heh.

Michelle Malkin says the Nutroots lose, America Wins. Also that they profanity spewing despondent. Double heh heh. They are also trotting out some conspiracy theories

  • Isn’t Webb’s son on active duty in Iraq? I think this may be a factor as to why he has seemed to quietly capitulate to Bush after showing some initial spark leading up to his election…his son could be “re-assigned” to perpetual IED patrol…I could be way off though, I’m not even sure what branch his son is in.
  • I mean, doesn’t it seem odd that after the whole “Webb snubs Bush” tiff at the elects introductions, which if I can recall had Bush asking Webb how his “boy” was doing **smirk, smirk, chuckle** that Webb seemed a lot less out-spoken

    If Webb’s son is still in Iraq and is as big a worthless wussy as Webb he’s so far from combat he couldn’t hear a 5,000 pound bomb go off and has a big ‘PI’ stamped on his records to assure he stays away.
