Watch this short commercial by Brad Whitford about the two bills that greatly differ with regards to the retroactive telecom immunity that BushCo is trying to shove down our throat. Chris Dodd, bless his heart, has promised to filibuster the craptastic one. DiFi hasn’t said how she feels about the bill.
Call DiFi and tell that slut to make up her little mind and support NO amnesty for the Telco’s.

They did it. Shumer and DiFi voted for Mukasey. From MSNBC:
The Judiciary Committee advanced Attorney General designate Michael Mukasey’s nomination to the Senate floor Tuesday, virtually ensuring confirmation for a former judge ensnarled in bitter controversy over terrorism-era prisoner interrogations.
The 11-8 vote came only after two key Democrats accepted his assurance to enforce any law Congress might enact against waterboarding.
The White House and Senate Republicans called for a swift confirmation vote, which is expected by the end of next week.
The confirmation of Michael B. Mukasey as attorney general seemed all but assured late this afternoon when Senators Charles E. Schumer and Dianne Feinstein, two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced that they would vote in favor of the nominee.
Mr. Schumer said his decision had been “extremely difficult,” and that a big factor was Mr. Mukasey’s opinion, conveyed to him this afternoon, that “were Congress to pass a law banning certain interrogation techniques, we would clearly be acting within our constitutional authority.” Senator Feinstein said that, whatever Mr. Mukasey’s shortcomings, he “is not Alberto Gonzales.” Ms. Feinstein had been a sharp critic of the former attorney general.
For the love of pete DiFi..no ONE is ‘Berto’ ya dumb bitch. As for Schumer’s explanation..I can only say this..it couldn’t of been THAT difficult you bastard. I have known for some time that Feinstein is a DINO..but just this year became aware that Schumer is one as well.
It pains me to say, once again..some of the most powerful Dem’s have hoodwinked us, they are turncoats my dear reader. As such, they need to be voted out of office when they come up for re-election.
Its a no-brainer for progressives..and we need to make it the same for American’s who love our country and its Constitution. Get them out of office..retire their worthless asses. Sell-out sumbitches that they are. With Democrats like these in office..we don’t have to worry about Rethugs do we?
I get a nifty lil email from Megavote. It shows me all the bills voted on by the fuckwits that represent us in DC. Here is the latest..check out DiFi..the bitch voted FOR Southwick. I can’t believe it..but she did. As FDL points out here about DiFi: “Bush invited Sen. Dianne Feinstein to join him on Air Force One during his trip. It may not have been coincidence that less than 24 hours earlier, Feinstein played a pivotal role in allowing Judge Leslie Southwick, a target of liberal groups, to be confirmed to an appeals court when she voted to block a filibuster and support the president’s nomination.
With a 7:40 a.m. Thursday departure from Andrews Air Force Base, Feinstein found herself seated in the rear of the plane with a handful of Southern California congressional representatives. After a breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage and French toast, Bush popped back for what the senator described as a frank two-hour conversation, mostly about foreign policy.”
