It's because he has the best name on Capitol Hill.

Angus King, the independent? Yeah, he's totally a Washington insider.

It makes me think of Snowcrash which is really cool.

In which Ramesh Ponnuru finally says something that makes me nod my head in agreement:

"The more you say this guy is a crackpot with no judgment, the more you have to say: then why was he given so much authority over information?"

Pretty much. What blows the mind, is that this has been a growing concern for years, and folks keep poo pooing it away...

What I don't get is how this is suddenly a scandal. I mean, how long has NSA been around? How long have warrantless wiretaps been a thing? How long have perceivably tiny intrusions into the privacies of the average citizen (FB and other social media where people just give the information away) been creeping up? It's just funny to me. Just like it'll be funny when the idiots in this state finally wake up to the shiat sandwich Jindal sneaked in between crawfish boils, but that's gonna be a while thanks to massive cuts to various levels of education.

because there are two things you never want to see being made: laws and sausage

it's more of a confirmation of what things we assume that make it a scandal. We all know that JFK's death involved more than just Oswald, but without proof, it's just assumptions/conspiracies. when the proof is revealed, we suddenly become outraged that our notions were correct

I don't think the idea that Oswald did not act alone is a conspiracy theory.  It is popular belief.  There are conspiracy theories about it.  However, the true skeptic rejects the Warren Commission findings.

regardless, can you imagine what would happen if we ever got confirmation that our beliefs/fears came true? Same goes for "government listening in on everything" we assume it happens but have no proof, and until there's proof, its harmless conjecture. Now we have proof and shiat'shiat the fan, and they don't have an umbrella

I see your point.  I've known that they have monitored communication for about a decade now.  60 Minutes special on it and all.

We did this one and it was great.  This only works if the person is pretty, confident and not neurotic.

E-mail all her co-workers first thing in the morning and say "Compliment (her name) on her hair today"
