American Bar Association v. Bush

The ABA, whose endorsement of Roberts and Alito, SpinDentist points out, Bush was only too happy to tout, has denounced Bush's spying on Americans. They've also called on Congress to say that No, it's not what we voted for in 2001 and "to investigate the president's program to determine its legality, the extent of telephone and e-mail spying, and whether information obtained through the program was used in legal proceedings."

This ain't small potatoes. This is the largest group of American lawyers with 400,000 members demanding that the highest legislative body in the land investigate a possible crime.

Though, as SpinDentist also points out,


"Now we'll hear from Scotty [McClellan] that these folks are commie terrorists who hate America and whose only desire is to take away our right to SUVs."
