Chris Dodd in ’08!

Something amazing happened today. A presidential candidate stepped forward and showed true leadership in the face of our runaway president and the corporations that hold the puppet strings.

Chris Dodd will put a hold on the horrible Fisa capitulation bill. Greenwald breaks it down.

I am officially supporting Chris Dodd for President in 2008. I contacted the campaign to start volunteering this morning. I am very happy to have a candidate that takes the shredding of the Constitution seriously. None of the big three (Clinton, Edwards, Obama) seem to have a clue when it comes to our basic rights. Could that be because the have tons of corporate cash in their pockets.

I’d be real happy with a Dodd/Obama ticket. I don’t think that Barak has quaffed too much Kool-Aid yet, but he’s certainly teetering above the slippery slope.

Check out Dodd’s website, and sign the petition.

Whether you like him or hate him, you have to admit that Glenn Greenwald is a force of nature.

All of these subversive and grotesque policies — the Yoo/Addington theories of the imperial presidency, torture, rendition, illegal surveillance, black sites — began as secret, illegal Bush administration policies. But the more they are revealed, and the more we do nothing about them, the more they become our own.

And today, he is particularly on point. If you’ve got a few minutes, go read it.
