I’m Getting Political

I don’t generally get partisan here. While I definitely identify myself as generally liberal, I don’t belong to any political party. But I’m feeling so irked today.

If one were to pose the question, “What does Alberto Gonzalez need?” my answer would definitely not be “expanded powers.” But the wiretapping bill has passed, with necessary help from the Democrats. If fearing the terrorists means that they’ve won, then they have. At least in this apartment. I admit it. I’m afraid of terrorist. But not enough to feel okay with reduced accountability from this (or any) political administration. Bush’s approval rating is so freaking low, how is it his plans still get enough kowtowing from the opposition party that such egregious measures get approved?

I found lists of the House and Senate Dems who played along, courtesy of Daily Kos.:
