G.O.P. Senators Say Accord Is Set on Wiretapping

Moving to tamp down Democratic calls for an investigation of the administration's domestic eavesdropping program, Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday that they had reached agreement with the White House on proposed bills to impose new oversight but allow wiretapping without warrants for up to 45 days.

...domestic eavesdropping program...wiretapping without warrants...

And you thought you had 4th Amendment rights! That's so cute!

Apparently, we are all now citizens of the country formerly known as the United States of America (TCFKAUSA). Hopefully Prince can come up with an appropriate symbol for this.

UPDATE, 07/24/06: Over the weekend, I bought a copy of Tom Tomorrow's "Hell in a Handbasket." Right there on the front cover, it says, "Dispatches from the Country Formerly Known as America." I did not intentionally rip off Mr. Tomorrow's phrase and use it in this here blog post. However, I must have unintentionally ripped it off, so for that, I apologize.
