Dick Cheney, discussing his support of Bush’s recent executive order to permit domestic wiretapping without warrants:

The President and I believe very deeply that there is a threat… the vast majority of Americans support the Administration’s surveillance policies.

Wow. Here’s a man who’s in touch with the common folk. I’m sure if I went out to my local Safeway and asked ten random shoppers if they support government surveillance of American citizens– without wiretaps or any other approvals or oversight– every one of them would object.

I can’t help but wonder how Bush and Cheney come to their conclusions.
