Funniest quote of the day comes from Representative Jane Harman of California, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee:
I think if we can ever get this case to the Supreme Court, the White House will lose, big-time.Hey, Ms Harman! Bush has already stacked the Supreme Court - and you Democrats helped him do it!
That tidbit via the New York Times. This bit also sticks out:
Mr. Specter also said he wanted to know whether the big telephone companies that shared their data with the National Security Agency — AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth — had been coerced to do so. USA Today quoted unidentified officials as saying that a smaller company, Qwest, had been threatened with losing future government contracts.
