Feingold: We’re Not the Prosecutors’ Committee, We’re the Judiciary Committee
If you missed the thoroughly depressing PATRIOT Act hearing today, this was one of two highlights. Listen carefully at 17 seconds where someone who sounds like Pat Leahy sighs, “Oh boy.”
The rest of the hearing featured Democrat after Democrat arguing that we need to develop lists of all the potential suspects out there buying acetone and hydrogen peroxide.
if the federal government does as well at tracking explosives’ ingriedients as it is doing tracking meth ingredients, I expect the nation to be awash in explosives in 5, 4, 3 …
jes sayin, is all
Way OT But Interesting
Was Rochester Hills, Michigan woman convicted of selling telecommunications equipment to Saddam Hussein a victim of CIA plot?
A jury in March convicted Dawn Hanna for selling telecommunications equipment to Iraq under Saddam Hussein in 2003-03, a violation of a federal trade embargo.
But Emad al-Yawer, who worked as a middleman between the buyers and Hanna’s Rochester-based company, says he initiated contact with Hanna under the instruction of the CIA.

That does sound like Leahy. My only other candidate is Specter.
Pretty sure it’s not Specter. He voted with Feingold on everything today and I think he was out of the room by that point.
Spector?? Voting with Feingold on everything???
Has he had some sort of Road to Damascus experience?
Or is he just reacting to his upcoming primary battle with Joe Sestak?

Yep, I agree on Leahy. Sounds pretty upset about being called out for something that is painfully obvious, doesn’t he? Truth is becoming more and more out of bounds in our government…
And in mere moments, American society is changed as during the next six months we discover that 75% of the blondes out there actually aren’t, there’s way more gray hair out there than anyone suspected, and nail polish becomes a thing of the past…
Oh, and there’s also an uptick in infections, because people can’t wash out cuts with cheap hydrogen peroxide anymore.
Does Grecian Formula have any bomb-making ingredients?
It does have Lead, however, so I had to get my wife to “do” my hair with Clairol hair coloring instead (She has something against gray hair.) Does Clairol have any bomb-making ingredients that I need to be worried about?

Yeah, I dunno, they have done pretty well staking themselves out as the Prosecutor Committee for a long time now.
So how does this thing work? Does the Star Chamber follow guidelines from the Prosecutor Committee or is it easier for the Committee to come along after the fact and rubber stamp anything they want?
Conservapedia might want to move their Conservatution project ahead of the Conservabible. Getting those Star Chambers down in writing is pretty important.
Already wrote the Bill of Rights for the Conservatution today: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10.
Gives you space to add in an amendment about controlling the womb of the lesser sex and another for “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
The good Senator Feingold is right pissed off:
