Yay for bipartisanship!

Who says Washington is in gridlock? Today Obama went back on yet another campaign pledge by extending The Patriot Act for a year, a bill he said gave the government "powers it didn't need to invade our privacy without cause or suspicion" back in 2005. The House voted 315 to 97 in favor of the extension. No summit needed!

Sure, during campaign years Democrats will make noises about these police state excesses of the Bush era, but in reality everyone is pretty much on board. After all, a guy did melt his genitals with an underwear bomb recently. What's Dick Cheney keep giving himself heart attacks over?

I expect a lot of rationalizations from Obama's beleaguered fan base (hands tied, takes time, yadda yadda) that you wouldn't hear if that dumb ass dry drunk decider from Texas did the same thing.
