Dear Congressman Watt:

I know you're taking a wait and see attitude on this issue, but you might want to reconsider whether you think Dear Leader broke the law with his illegal wiretapping scheme. Especially now that this unlikely fellow seems to disagree with you. I know he's only the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and all, but he might just have a point.

Sen. Arlen Specter, whose committee has scheduled hearings Monday on the National Security Agency program, said he believes the administration violated a 1978 law specifically calling for a secretive court to consider and approve such monitoring. Specter, R-Pa., said he might consider subpoenas for administration documents that would detail its legal justification for the program.

Sheesh.

Would it be too much to ask that the opposition party . . . ummmm . . . exercise a little opposition?
