Washington Journal: Trent Franks On Wiretapping

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

I really believe that the Republican party should send out Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) to represent them as often as possible. It just makes my job that much easier. Remember this gem?

Rep. "I know how to memorize talking points" Franks appears on C-Span's Washington Journal, unintentionally proving the argument that there should be at least a minimum IQ requirement to be an elected representative, to discuss the FISA fix currently under discussion in Congress, and dismissing any concerns of this administration abusing citizens with illegal wiretapping with the challenge (the same one verbatim that I've heard from a whole bunch of Republican mouthpieces, curious that) to name anyone in the US who has been illegally wiretapped.

Ah, but this is what happens when you send the third-stringers out to represent you on a channel dedicated to political wonks like myself: the challenge is answered...remember the news reports of the Quakers being wiretapped?
