Of course the Bush administration's warrantless wiretapping programs are still illegal, even after President Obama inherited them. And of course the 13 IQ 13%ers who call themselves "tea partiers" will giggle, smirk and protest anything you (the media, collectively) present as "Obama's illegal surveillance" or similar but you'll alienate the middle, if not from yourself, then from the issue of civil liberties because we all know very well that President Obama's worst offense on this subject is reversing Bush policies too slowly.

Lieberman and McCain are both has-beens -- one lost his last primary and the other is about to lose his next primary, and I doubt McCain can win a general election after losing the primary -- and the legislation you're presesnting today as a genuine threat to freedom of speech, movement, and pursuit of happiness are in fact just examples of those two chumps' unpopularity, lust for attention and above all, their core depravity.

Can't wait to hear from Siegelman.
