Proud and Grateful

I don't spend much, well any, time watching talking heads on teevee and this is from a few days back but I just saw a transcript of CNN's The Situation Room that I find rather hard to stomach. Bob Barr and Dana Rohrabacher discussing the whole NSA surveillance issue.

Barr has been very critical of the presidential spying decree, stating repeatedly that is unlawful and should be viewed and treated as such. But I never realised, until just now, what a simp Rohrabacher is.
BARR: Here again, this is absolutely a bizarre conversation where you have a member of Congress saying that it's okay for the president of the United States to ignore U.S. law, to ignore the Constitution, simply because we are in an undeclared war.

The fact of the matter is the law prohibits -- specifically prohibits -- what apparently was done in this case, and for a member of Congress to say, oh, that doesn't matter, I'm proud that the president violated the law is absolutely astounding, Wolf.

ROHRABACHER: Not only proud, we can be grateful to this president.
The few, the proud, the mewling.

I can only imagine that if Bush said he needed to feed on still-beating hearts of young, fresh virgins because it's "wartime," Rohrabacher would be leading the posse and rounding them up post-haste.
