Chris Dodd, defender of the Rule of Law

Sen. Chris Dodd, & the few other Senators & activists who supported him, are real American heros for preventing a bill which would give immunity to telecommunication companies for breaking the law by spying on Americans without a FISA court approval.

In these Gee Dubbz years, I often find myself saying "Damn, I thought this was America" (c) Randy from South Park. Today, for once, it's the reverse, more like "Damn, today it actually IS still America".
