But of course. Every president since Rutherford Hayes (the telephone was invented in 1876) has used an intelligence program in one form or another to tap phone lines of suspect individuals. All of a sudden now it's a huge frickin deal!

Funny how the media never looked into how Bubba and Janet "The Torch" Reno handled Ruby Ridge, Waco, and other domestic debacles to make sure they had their 't's crossed and 'i's dotted on their warrants, or if there even were warrants. All of a sudden now this stuff is a horrible threat to civil liberties. The media wasn't beating this drum during the Klinton years when the FBI/ATF was kicking in doors, gassing people, and burning their homes with them still inside. Maybe somebody ought to be asking Ted Koppel et al about their coverage on that!!

One thing that is wonderfully predictable about the Democrats and their handmaidens, the media, is when they scream the loudest about some supposed Republican shenanigans it is they themselves who are up to their eyeballs in it. The NSA and Abramoff deals are only the latest.
