Democrats in Congress
Showing some backbone. We might as well take notice and applaud to reward good behavior. The White House's anger here is illogical to the point of stupidity. Bush is basically saying Democrats are failing to protect Americans - actually endangering lives - by letting recent changes to the FISA law expire, but he can't possibly give in on telecom immunity, which would restore those changes. He's essentially saying that protecting telecom companies is more important than protecting the lives of supposedly endangered Americans. Good for the House for calling his bluff.

The sad part is, usually that would have worked for him.
