Quote of the Day

Sen. Susan Collins:

While I support wiretapping terrorism suspects, I have reservations about the sweeping approach the NSA is pursuing. I also have serious concerns about unelected government officials at the NSA taking on this complicated issue instead of Congress. It is Congress that should establish the framework for wiretapping American citizens.
Sorry, I think I muffed a few words.

Collins wasn't talking about lawbreaking at the NSA. Of course not. After all, would she ever really complain about the military or intelligence apparatus engaging in illegal activity or overstepping its authority?

No, she was talking about the EPA's legal, logical and evidence-based decision to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

My mistake.
