We Don’t Mock The American People Enough For Their Sheer Idiocy

For fuck’s sake:

Fully 69 percent of Democrats say terrorism investigations should be the government’s main concern, not privacy, an 18-percentage-point jump from early January 2006, when the NSA activity under the Bush administration was first reported. Compared with that time, Republicans’ focus on privacy has jumped 22 points.

And don’t go getting cute and thinking that Republicans’ newfound respect for privacy applies to women and their doctors. This isn’t a transvaginal ultrasound. This is serious.
