For those of you who have bemoaned the so-called "Patriot Act" and incursions on the Constitutionally-protected rights of citizens under the Bush administration, let me remind you that in two years of a Democrat majority in Congress, not a single one of those tools had been taken off the table. Now the Democrats have the Executive Branch as well and it will be interesting to see what they do with them -- and what you have to say about it when they do. I have not been impressed by that aspect of President G. W. Bush's tenure, either -- but I don't think the Opposition will be any better. They may select a slightly different group of targets, is all. Possibly including me. Promise me you'll still be outraged? At least a little?
