I sent the following email this morning to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer:
I’m paying attention. So many others are paying attention, too. Markos Moulitsas Zuniga is paying attention. Glenn Greenwald is paying attention. The ACLU is paying attention. And citizens on the right are paying attention, as well.
Allowing the law-breaking telecoms to get off scott-free for their crimes (why would they need amnesty unless they committed crimes?) is not what the American public hungers for. Allowing the extremely unpopular Bush Administration to escape accountability is not what America desires. Allowing any president, whether Democratic or Republican, unlimited power to spy on citizens is not freedom.
Money is being raised specifically to educate voters in your district, Majority Leader Hoyer. Hope you’ve enjoyed your political career.
It sounds threatening, doesn’t it? I’m kinda mad about the whole thing, I guess. But I’m just threatening him with voting him out of office, at most. Like Kos said:
We kicked Joe Lieberman out of the caucus. We got rid of Al Wynn this year. Those were test runs, so to speak. We’ve got a lot more of that ready to unleash in 2010.
More and better Democrats, both. Let’s make sure our government reflects the values of the majority for once.
