Slavish Conservative Bootlicking: Let Government Do Anything to Keep 1 Person Safe

James Delingpole sarcastically takes the New York Times to task for telling the world about Bush’s secret, illegal and unconstitutional warrantless wiretapping program that spied on innocent people. His 296th Way to Drive a Liberal Crazy is:
