For some time I’ve shied away from explicitly political content around here. Others do it better than I do, I have some need (rightly or wrongly) to minimize negative impressions, and so on.

But I’m listening to the news roundup this morning, and the dominant subject of the discussion is the newly-unearthed phone monitoring program conducted by the NSA. I have to ask: Has Tony Blankley always been such a tremendously belligerent bully? What a colossal ass.

PS: Jon Kyle, too:

This is nuts. We are in a war, and we’ve got to collect intelligence on the enemy. And you can’t tell the enemy in advance how you’re going to do it.

If he’s one of America’s ten best senators, we’re all well and truly doomed.
