question for the media...

When it was the Democrats using the filibuster, we heard about it nonstop, how it was grinding everything to a halt, how the Democrats should let things go to a straight up-or-down vote...

Why aren't we hearing that now that the Republicans are making our senators come in from the hospital to make their filibuster-breaking votes to get anything done? Why can't the Democrats' publicists get this message out as effectively as the Republicans' ones?

FISA question

Ok, so there's retroactive immunity for any crimes the telcos may have committed a few years back. That kinda sucks, but there it is.

Anyone know if there's immunity for them in the bill for the next time the government makes such an illegal request?
