Bipartisan? By whose definition?

The FISA vote by the house is being spun as a bipartisan effort. Bullshit. Check out the vote and you'll see that, as ususal, the Republicans voted as a block, except for one lone vote, and the only bipartisan effort was by Democrats who defected to their corporate sponsors, and to the lame-duck president. Pathetic.

The bill supports warrantless wiretapping on anyone, and immunity for telecom companies who participated in those wiretaps, illegally, in the past.

Connecticut's congressional reps voted against the bill, as might be expected, with the exception of Chris Shays.
