Yay! A new law from our leaders!

Don't miss Keith Olbermann's impassioned commentary on the Military Commissions Act of 2006: read the text or watch the videoRon Paul was one of only eight Republicans in the House to vote against this outrageous bill, which Bush predictably signed last week.  See how your representative voted on it.

To be fair to the bill, there seems to be honest debate about whether it is unconstitutional and whether it applies to citizens.  But, regardless of the technicalities, repugnant legislation like this makes me wish every bill automatically contained a sunset clause and had to be specifically re-approved every few years.
