This Just In

FISA Bill Tabled:

"Well, one down. The Senate just voted to kill (table) the Senate Judiciary Committee's surveillance bill, which did not contain retroactive immunity for the telecoms. The vote was 60-34 to table, with a number of Dems crossing over. As we said earlier, a number of other amendments will also go up for votes this afternoon.

"Among the Democrats voting to kill the SJC bill were Sens. Mark Pryor (AK), Daniel Inouye (HI), Claire McCaskill (MO), Mary Landrieu (LA), Ken Salazar (CO) and Tim Johnson (SD)."

I'll grumble to myself (in a soundproof box that I check for taps).
