It’s about time that the silly Democrats on Capital Hill started trying to make some waves.

It seems that all they want to do is to sit timidly by while The King and his Court trample over the Constitution. Remember “Checks and Balances” guys? YOU are the CHECK that provides the balance. Now get off of your lazy arses and subpoena some records.

Democrats call for investigation of NSA wiretaps

WASHINGTON (CNN)—Democratic House leaders called Sunday for an independent panel to investigate the legality of a program President Bush authorized that allows warrantless wiretaps on U.S. citizens, according to a letter to House Speaker Dennis Hastert.

“We believe that the President must have the best possible intelligence to protect the American people, but that intelligence must be produced in a manner consistent with our Constitution and our laws, and in a manner that reflects our values as a nation,” the letter says.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; Minority Whip Steny Hoyer; Rep. John Conyers, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee; and Rep. Henry Waxman, the ranking member on the House Committee on Government Reform, signed the letter.
