One thing I love in the whole wiretapping debate is the argument that FISA is sufficient for what the President wants to do. Of course it is!

By “shown,” I mean physically held up and declared to be evidence. It doesn’t have to be perused by a Judge–for all he knows it’s a stack of drawings from a three year old child of a NSA employee who want to unload some crappy art in the shredder rather than deface his fridge.
