Trust the Government

Remember when Republicans could be counted on to tell us that we should never, ever, EVER trust the government?

I guess what they really meant to say was never, ever, EVER trust a government with Democrats in charge.

Hesiod provides links to stories about the "misapplication" of the Patriot Act. Follow the link to get the ugly details. Suffice it to say that a goodly number of detainees under the P.A. aren't what you'd expect to find in a random sample of terrorists.

What really gets me about this whole thing is that, had Gore won office and gone on to propose a Patriot Act in the wake of 9/11/2001, the Republicans would be screaming bloody murder and calling for Gore's impeachment on the grounds of subverting the consitution.

C'mon, you know it's true.
