Molly Says It Best

As usual, Molly Ivins writes about the most important story of the year- the President deliberately violating the law by authorizing warrantless wiretapping- with subtle wisdom and eloquence. While the initial uproar over Bush's forced disclosure is dying out, Molly reminds us that "either the president of the United States is going to have to understand and admit he has done something very wrong, or he will have to be impeached." In other words, if we let this go, the inch we give this shrub will turn into a mile.

Here's a paragraph from her article, which I found at "I don't like to play scary games where we all stay awake late at night, telling each other scary stories -- but there's a reason we have never given our government this kind of power. As the late Sen. Frank Church said, "That capability could at any time be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capacity to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide."
