And yet more spine!

I can't keep up. Russ Feingold leading a group of Dems opposing the extension of the Patriot Act (to indefinitely undermine our civil rights), and preparing to use whatever tools are required for the job.
"I've cleared my schedule right up to Thanksgiving," Mr. Feingold said, adding that he was making plans to read aloud from the Bill of Rights as part of a filibuster if necessary.
The bill is still being fought over in committee (with the cooler heads in the Senate demanding a few protections), but could come up for a final vote at any moment.
