Thank God Ted’s Looking Out For Us (Says Al Qaeda)

nullBush and Democrats in Congress are butting heads over the House’s version of a surveillance bill.

Bush wants to have the ability to eavesdrop on foreign phone calls and e-mails that pass through the United States in order to root out terrorists.

Democrats like Ted Kennedy disagree, believing that the government should only employ eavesdropping, snooping and general nosiness when attempting to uncover which domestic citizens are selling foods containing trans-fats, smoking in a car where kids are present, displaying Christian symbols on or near government property, not wearing a seat belt, fudging their taxes, trying to talk somebody out of an abortion, using lawn chemicals, buying a gun, hunting, fishing, building additions on their homes, shopping at Wal-Mart and buying Skittles on school property.
