Stuff like this sounds really warm and fuzzy ..

Democratic leaders have expressed a new willingness to work with the White House to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to make it easier for the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on some purely foreign telephone calls and e-mail. Such a step now requires court approval.

.. but meanwhile back at the ranch, somebody is speaking with forked-tongue ..

House Democrats canceled Tuesday’s planned hearing with Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell, prompting a rebuke from Republicans who want Congress to proceed quickly on updating a key surveillance law.

So is somebody going to tell me that they just don't need to hearing the DNI or is it that they just don't like the letter that the DNI sent to Arlen Specter.

More likely, the Democrats don't want to supply a forum to clear up the confusion on intelligence activities that they managed to generate in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

My BS-meter is pegged.

Yes, they fear that, if McConnell clears things up too well publicly, and the senators react clearly in one way or another, then Gonzales will be able to write his own letter agreeing with all the clarity, ending the senators' sadistic fun.

With these guys, if you say hello, they want to charge you with perjury just to see you squirm. They want to ask you week after week, what did you mean by hello? Sorry, senators, but that's a sicking abuse of power.

Last week you were said you said "Hello" but this week in sworn testimony you said you said "Hi!". Obviously there is a discrepancy here and your credibility is quite frankly gone. Which time were you lying and why should we believe you now?
