Keith Olbermann covers the breaking showdown between President Bush and Congress.   Can you believe that Mr. One-Full-Year-Of-My-Eight-Years-In-Office-Was-Spent-On-Vacation is complaining about Congress taking their August break instead of giving him the rubber stamp he's looking for his wiretapping program?  Note the playing of the fear card.  Jonathan Turley joins Keith and tries to make sense in this Bizarro World confrontation, and the complicit Congress isn't spared his scorn.

The ACLU has an action item: Tell Congress Not to Cave in to Fear

And more: Don't rush to modify FISAStampeding Congress. Again. (reg. req'd)
