We've been warned

Why would American voters be down on President Bush and most of Congress going into the 2006 congressional elections? It's not like people would be upset that Bush has ordered warrantless spying on citizens' conversations based on a proffered legal justification that troubles even strong conservatives like U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan.

And it can't be that anyone would be uneasy to learn that dozens of congressmen took contributions connected to lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty last week on fraud and tax evasion charges. Or that they'd be the slightest bit worried that the federal government has known for months about a legal loophole that allows anyone to buy your phone records in minutes for a mere $110 and has yet to close it.

No, our society still must be suffering from the continuing corrosive effect of Justice Anthony Kennedy's Internet usage. When will we finally say enough is enough?

I say this whole damn country's gone to hell since David Lee Roth left Van Halen.

I think most people just don't give a sh*t, or they've been brainwashed into believing that Bush can "protect" them. They can't imagine a time when his abuses of power could be used against them, so why should they worry? Anyway, it's just icky politics...
