Required Reading for 12/23

@ 11:43 PM (104 months, 21 days ago)

Several must-reads today:

1.  Hmmm..now we know why Idiot Son really nominated Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court.  During his stint in the Reagan Administration, Alito said that a U.S. Attorney General should be immune from any lawsuits stemming from illegal wiretapping. (Read: the man who wants to be the next Supreme Court Justice, thinks it's ok for the Attorney General to break the law).

Alito Urged Wiretap Immunity

2.  The Washington Post takes a look at the turf wars inside the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and it's parent (the Department of Homeland Security) on George Bush's watch.

Brown's Turf Wars Sapped FEMA's Strength
