Friday, I'm in love...with the Patriot Act

Short post today. If you didn't get to see the House Hearing on Patriot Act Reauthorization this morning, you should at least check out these TWO CLIPS. Representative Sensenbrenner (R-WI), the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, conducted the entire meeting with an air of hostility. The hearing ended abruptly after the chairman decided he didn't like what he'd just heard from Rep. Jackson-Lee(D-TX). Despite numerous calls for Point of Order from ranking Democrats, Rep. Sensenbrenner stormed out of the room and had the microphones turned off. Stunning. Randi Rhodes and her crew have set up a special Weekend Edition of her regular website that includes the video of today's hearing, responses from prominent Democrats, and her interviews with Sheila Jackson-Lee, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and Jerry Nadler, all ranking members of the judiciary committee present at the hearing.
