“Hi, My Name is Kim LeBiavant. There is a Secret Room Used by the NSA to Spy on Domestic Communications.”

posted by on October 19 at 9:10 AM

On November 28, the GOP candidates for President will do a YouTube debate like the one the Democrats did in July: People make video questions; post them on YouTube; YouTube viewers vote for the ones they like best; and the top videos get played and addressed by the candidates at the debate.

Please vote for this one about AT&T, the 4th Amendment, and warrantless wire taps:

G.O.P. to Kim LeBiavant: What will we do to protect you from warrantless wiretaps? That's easy: Nothing. If we did, why, then the next time there was a terrorist attack, we'd have only you to blame, Kim. And possibly your future children, too.

There was a secret room back in the 70s.

We were listening to your long-distance calls back then too.

Despite sabatoge from fellow Dem Harry Reid, Chris Dodd is not backing off in his vow to fight telecom immunity.
If you want to encourage a rare Dem with a backbone:

Here are some questions I'd like to see posed to the Republican presidential candidates:


http://www.balloon-juice.com/?p=8892

1.) “Would you have sex with a man to stop a terrorist attack?”

2.) “If lowering taxes results in increased revenues then would lowering taxes to zero result in infinite revenues?”

3.) “If you had a time machine, would you travel back in time and abort Bin Laden?”

4.) “Would you torture and kill Jesus to ensure mankind’s salvation? And how does that work?”

5.) “If Russia entered Turkey from the rear would Greece help?”

6.) For Rudy specifically: “How many alimony checks does the sanctity of marriage cost?”

Someone later pointed out that question number one should have been written "Would you let a man have sex with you to prevent a terrorist attack?" So that the Republican would have to be the bottom and asked what's worse, a dick in the ass or a terrorist nuke going off in a major American city?
