When you call your congresscritter to complain aboout torture, tell them no immunity for the colluders of BushCo policy. Cujo over at Slobber and Spittle has reminded me that the pesky telecom's immunity bill has reared it's ugly head yet again. He has a great piece on it and is recommended reading.

Thanks Hope. Pull up a pillow and sit down. There's still plenty of room.

Have to take issue with one of your keywords, though. Unfortunately, thanks to Steny Hoyer and some other Blue Dogs, this is bipartisan ratfuckery. By themselves, the Republicans couldn't have done this.

You are so correct my friend. It is bi-partisan ratfuckery. My bad. Corrected.

A diarist at Daily Kos alerts us to a Jonathan Turley appearance on Countdown. Turley posits that the reason some powerful Dem's, including Pelosi and Jay Rockefeller, are pushing telecom immunity is to "cover their own asses" for their complicity with Bush when they went along with his warrantless spying (on Americans) program. They don't want to go to jail when the scoop is revealed in a telecom trial.

Also in the same interview with Turley, he talked about how the congress has not passed this bill so far because of the public outcry and the message going viral on the blogs.

It seems that this bill will again stall in the senate. I sure hope so and I can't wait to vote Nancy Pelosi out of office
