A new low in cowardice
No matter which way the vote on the unnecessary but not-as-bad-as-it-could-be FISA "reform" goes in the House tonight, the House leadership has sunk to a new depth of craven, shameful complicity with the Republican regime.
They are going to hold the vote in a closed session. That means: no press, no media, no C-SPAN, and members and staff present are forbidden to report on the proceedings.
Land of the free.
Update: 8:25 pm, 13 March - They will probably hold the vote tomorrow in open session. The secret session is an opportunity for the Republicans to grandstand with more scare-tactics hooey that Bush and Cheney have fed them. Conyers and Holt are refreshingly skeptical; hope that the closed session emboldens other Dems to be equally frank in calling the Rs on their b.s.
