Gosh-a-mighty: Harry The Weasel is suddenly all miffed about the Federal Government’s penchant for snooping.
Huh; I wonder why?
(via ABC News) – “…In letters to the heads of the CIA and Justice Department, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the CIA’s decision to search the Senate intelligence committee’s network and computers without approval was “absolutely indefensible” and carried serious implications for the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches.
Ever hear someone say something so blatantly false that you’re practically stunned into silence (at least temporarily)? Ever hear a lie so bold, so insanely mendacious, that you can’t honestly believe you heard it accurately?
Ever hear a statement that is so categorically untrue, yet uttered with such apparent conviction, that you literally pinch yourself …a couple of times?
To borrow a phrase from Allahpundit: “Am I awake???” =>
“…The “nuclear option” refers to a move by the majority party in Senate — in this case the Democrats — to change the Senate rules to allow most executive branch and judicial nominations to be approved with a simple majority – 51 votes — rather than the 60 votes now required.

We constantly hear various arguments from the Left and scratch our heads, wondering how such lines of reasoning are even possible. Because whether we’re discussing deficits, birth control, guns, national security, health care or education, the Left’s answer always seems to be, “more government!“.
“I got a fever, ….and the only prescription…., is MORE GOVERNMENT!!”
Such a myopic adherence to an obviously flawed institution would be puzzling, until you consider what their true belief system is. And make no mistake, that’s where this comes from: belief. Which means that far from being a statement of logic, it’s a statement of faith.
