Unbelievable!! There Are Actually Some Conservatives With Principles!

A new conservative organization calling itself Patriots to Restore Checks and Balances (PRCB) has issued a statement calling for Congress to hold "open, substantive hearings" on the Bush Administration's violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Among the organizations members are former US Representative Bob Barr (R-GA), Grover Norquist (Americans for Tax Reform), David Keene (chairman, American Conservative Union) and Alan Gottlieb (Second Amendment Foundation). PRCB has issued a new press release here.

The group has also set up a website. While I applaud the fact that some conservatives are finally coming to their senses about King George, I will say that I am skeptical of anything that Grover Norquist is involved with. The guy is creepy and dishonest (very creepy and very dishonest).

The name Grover Norquist should set off alarms everywhere. As far as I can tell, his only mission in life is to destroy all social programs and steal as much as he can from the middle class.

Totally true. Which is why I am a little suspicious of his involvement. Maybe its his way of getting some distance from his "associate" Jack Abramoff.

And hey, if you want to leave a comment that can be attributed to you, next time erase the gobbledy-gook inside the box and insert your name. You will only have to do it the first time, then it will remember you. (The code is all jacked up).
