For the record

I just wrote to Maryland's senior senator about her vote on the FISA amendment.

Dear Senator Mikulski,

I am writing as a constituent to express my deep dismay upon learning of your vote authorizing the White House extended warrantless surveillance powers without full and sufficient consideration of this important matter by Congress and especially by the Senate. There is simply no excuse for rushing such legislation in advance of the congressional holiday. Even those in your own Democratic party have admitted that the bill is bad, possibly worse than first glance revealed.

How do you justify this blatant abrogation of your duties in Congress?

Did she describe the bill as "unacceptable," just as Pelosi did and right after the Democratic controlled House passed it?

Go right ahead.

Oh, Babs.

Ken, I'm going to be doing a letter-writing campaign on the National general strike day, or Patriots Day, Sept. 11th. This is great - it's not about any issue at all: it's about ALL the issues! Yee-hah!
