This is NOT what Thomas Jefferson had in Mind

When the Government tells you to do something, I think you all recognize, uh, that that is something that you need to do.
That is what Republican House Member Kit Bond had to say on NPR this morning when asked why the big telecom companies should get immunity even if they broke the law. Doesn't that go against the whole idea of this country? Aren't we supposed to be a government of laws - not of men? Isn't this the same argument prominent Nazis made during the Nuremberg trials?

The Washington Independent has a great summary of the whole story appropriately titled:Democrats Cave on Telecom Immunity.

And once again: Obama where are you?
