One sensible Republican

On the reauthorization of the Patriot Act:

Even some Republicans were alarmed by the exclusion of many amendments.

Representative C. L. Otter of Idaho said the action amounted to a "gag rule" that prevented a full debate on needed restrictions in the law. "I'm embarrassed to be on this side of the aisle," Mr. Otter said.

Thank you, Congressman Otter.

Not all Republicans are hacks. Just the ones that are in charge right now.
