More Change We Can Believe In

From the AP, via yahoo:

"DHS to kill domestic satellite spying

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano plans to kill a program begun by the Bush administration that would use U.S. spy satellites for domestic security and law enforcement, a government official said Monday."

Of course, the same Republican jackasses that are screaming every day that Obama is starting a totalitarian state that is destroying all of our freedoms, are going to take the predictable tack on this one:

"Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he hoped the department wasn't canceling the program.

"If it is true, it's a very big mistake," said King, who is the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee. "This is definitely a step back in the war on terror."

What a bunch of assholes. Well, the rest of us know that this is one more step back to sanity that we would have never seen under President Saint McCain, so as long as Obama keeps this up, Rep. Peter King and his miserable friends can stuff it.
