Most Fevered Brow of the Week

By on 1.10.06 | 10:58AM

I know. I know. It's only Tuesday, and most fevered brows are scowling at Judge Alito. But none compare with Bob Fitrakis of the Columbus Free Press, who offers the following:

"The Bush administration’s utter contempt for the U.S. Constitution and the specific information we now know about its use of the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance network should further call into question Bush’ 2004 presidential “election.” In a recent revelation, we have learned that the NSA shared the fruits of its illegal spying on behalf of Bush with other government agencies.

"What are e-voting machines and central tabulators that pass the voting results over electronic networks from the internet to phone lines? No more than data easily spied on and tapped into...

"Bush and his cabal are notorious for collecting raw intelligence data and using it for their political gain. While many progressives accept the fact that our government manufactured an illegal war in Iraq and routinely violate human rights worldwide, many are reluctant to accept that they would spy on John Kerry and rig the election – which is very easy to do when the NSA does your bidding."

From the Columbus Free Press to the New York Times. You can look for it there. But you saw it -- and laughed at it -- here first. Yes, it's possible the week will give us a more fevered brow. But whomever it is will have to rise to new heights to beat Fitrakis. So where is Babs Streisand this week?
