SnoopGate, ChickensWait, FedUpSate

"Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right."
-- Henry Mencken (Hat tip to the Smithsonian's ever-astute Gordan Sillars)

We're now so far beyond the farmer letting the fox guard the chickens. Now the chickens -- or at least my chickens, Sen. Tom Harkin and Rep. Leonard Boswell of Iowa -- are saying it's fine with them if the fox is the henhouse watchman.

On SnoopGate, all will be okay with them with a bill designed to make the illegal legal after the fact. No calls for an independent prosecutor. Letting a Congress controlled by Shrub's own "investigate" is fine with these chickens -- and I do mean chickens.

What's wrong, guys? The people are saying that they'll have your back -- as soon as you show us one with bones in it and not just a gelatinous second soft belly.
