Congress Is Still Awake...

With all the insanity in American politics these days, it is nice to see that the Congress is still awake, and willing to prevent the President from abusing his office, on occasion. Here are two examples.

The Senate has blocked the ability for the President to make Thanksgiving Recess Appointments.


The House passed a bill that did not provide retroactive immunity to big telecoms for their part in questionable domestic surveillance projects. We can only hope the Senate is equally as awake on this one, but I wouldn't bet the farm.
