Congress grows a pair

For the first time since the Chicken Democrats were elected en masse nearly two years ago, I'm finally able to applaud one of their efforts:
"A deeply divided House approved its latest version of terrorist surveillance legislation yesterday, rebuffing President Bush's demand for a bill that would grant telecommunications firms retroactive immunity for their cooperation in past warrantless wiretapping and deepening an impasse on a fundamental national security issue.

Congress then defiantly left Washington for a two-week spring break."

I didn't think they had the stones. Glad they finally stood up for something. But I'm sure they'll come back and keep funding the war as well as fatten their own states with tons of pork spending. Thanks in advance, guys.
