Go tell it on the mountain

Update: Senate is live on CSPAN-2 (Ch. 37, on Time-Warner cable in L.A. area)



Jane at Firedoglake has a message from the Obama campaign supporting Dodd's pledge to filibuster the FISA law that would give retro-active immunity to the bastard telecom companies for illegally spying on Americans:
"Senator Obama unequivocally opposes giving retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies and has cosponsored Senator Dodd's efforts to remove that provision from the FISA bill. Granting such immunity undermines the constitutional protections Americans trust the Congress to protect. Senator Obama supports a filibuster of this bill, and strongly urges others to do the same. It's not clear whether he can return for the vote, but under the Senate rules, the side trying to end a filibuster must produce 60 votes to cut off debate. Whether he is present for the vote for not, Senator Obama will not be among those voting to end the filibuster."

Leave comments for Dodd here.
