A dose of Doddmania would do it

By Libby

Now that I got my rant out of the way, it appears there is one small ray of hope to salvage the rule of law and any semblance of judicial relevance in our system. Jane Hamsher collects the links to those who didn't panic and came up with a brilliant solution to this untenable situation. The Senate bill hasn't been passed yet and all we need is one courageous Senator to step up and put a hold on it.

All eyes are on Chris Dodd who is clearly in the best position to do so. He's already made the issue of domestic surveillance a significant part of his campaign platform and as a candidate for the nomination has the best chance of being provided a soapbox by the media to make the case to the public for quashing this bill.

It's a win-win for Dodd. He could save the rule of law from becoming just another meaningless piece of paper and raise his profile in the race at the same time. I would urge everyone who cares about the future of our republic to either call and politely urge him to do so at (202)737-3633 or use this form to email him immediately. Needless to say, time is of the essence.
