[politics] File this under "Mixed Blessings"

On the one hand, it's a good thing that Homeland Security isn't fighting the Cold War as well as the so-called War on Terror: the story about DHS knocking on the doors of a student who ordered Mao's 'Little Red Book' through interlibrary loan is a hoax. On the other hand, the NYT revealed today that the NSA's scouring of domestic communication is even broader than originally thought. And on the gripping hand, Alito thinks expanded executive branch powers for domestic wiretapping is hunky-dory. Is it just me, or is anyone else out there being driven batshit by the fact that Bush and his cronies make paranoia seem, well, like aiming too low? I resent the fact that these guys make me feel like I need to wear a tinfoil hat... [original heads-up for the hoax is from Pandagon.]
