O, Yippe!
Well, the House of Representatives reauthorized the Patriot Act yesterday with 257 for it and 171 against it. Out of those, 44 Dems supported it and 14 Republicans opposed it.

I watched it on C-SPAN yesterday, forcing myself to stifle my vomit just long enough to listen to Sensenbrenner (in his nausiating accent) tell me why the Patriot Act needed to be renewed.

In response, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have prepared a 70-page dissent opposing the reauthorization, so atleast someone's doing something.
