Priorities (?!?)

Well, it's good to see that our intrepid Senators are on the case... Are they investigating the administration greatly expanding its use of national security letters to look into people's business, etc. records? ... their making an end-run around FISA? ... and possibly engaging in illegal wiretapping?

Oh, no, it's something waaaay more important to this country, the fact that someone accessed the passport applications of Senators McCain, Obama, and Clinton. Said Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pennsylvania) on CNN Tonight "That kind of breach of privacy is just despicable. I think that ought to be a very intense investigation." And, amazingly and apparently without intentional irony, "I think privacy is a very fundamental matter. And if you can't have privacy for Senator Clinton and Senator Obama, so what's the average person facing?"
