Wahhh!!! They're spoiling my fun, Mumsie!!!!

Now, maybe I'm reading this wrong, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I am, but it sure does look as if the Shrub has decidered that if he can't have super secret unlimited powers over snooping into our telephone and e-mail and other conversations with our friends and relatives overseas, then he'll just take his tape recorder and code book and go home pouting.

Apparently (if I read it right) if he can't have everything HIS way, and if he has to justify his snoopy-ness to a court, then by golly, he's not going to renew the program when it expires, gol-dang it!

In other news, it seems they're having a bit of trouble finding a jury for the Libby trial because of "political bias". I loved some of the quotes I saw in one article from USA Today, regarding Cheney:

"I don't have the highest opinion of him," a young financial analyst said. "If I had to rank people as to credibility, I wouldn't put him at the top of the list."

"There is nothing they could say or do that would make me think anything positive about them," the woman said moments before she was excused from the jury pool by U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton.

Probably a smart move. Though I'm a big advocate of serving on juries (not much tolerence for people who try to get out of it) the Libby trial promises to be one long hard slog.
