"Daddy, what was the Bill of Rights?" - Patriot Act Filibuster (Updated)

The N.Y. Times is reporting that Senate Democrats are preparing to filibuster renewal of the Patriot Act's expiring provisions. Russ Feingold (D. WI) said: This is worth the fight.

Damn f*cking right it is! And four years too late I might add. But in this case late is much better than never because if the compromise bill gets through, we'll all be trying to explain to our kids what the Bill of Rights was supposed to be about.

Now it looks like, with some additional Republicans in opposition, the Senate leadership may have an extremely hard time breaking a filibuster. Yippee!

Edwards-Feingold 08' !!!
How about Feingold-Edwards? Feingold has oddles more Senate experience than Edwards did in 2004 (or has now, for that matter).

Then the only question becomes: Do you believe in the "You need a southern Democrat to head the ticket CW?)
I was going to go to my local library to check out a book, but I would rather not have whatever government agency know that I check out "The Lorax".
