Snowe caves (again)

Snowe is backing down on her call for an investigation of Bush's illegal domestic spying program. She's signalling that, in today's closed Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, she'll settle for DeWine's bill that simply sweeps the lawbreaking under the rug and declares the whole thing legal. No further mention of any lying or trampling of the Constitution. As Georgia10 notes, "Oh, that's right. The lawlessness of a President is exempted only when that President wears a 10-gallon hat and calls himself a 'conservative.'"

The toll-free number for the Senate switchboard is 888-355-3588. There's still time to call Snowe's staff and tell her what you think.
