Kos More Sane Than the NYT?

Tigerhawk has some light weekend reading; a round-up of opinion regarding judge Anna Diggs Taylor's "just because" decision on NSA wiretapping.

Hugh Hewitt chastises Democrats for their sudden aversion to dissent when it comes to the opinion, reaches the obvious conclusion that Democrats can't be trusted with national security, is not-at-all-surprisingly accused of calling the Democrats traitors, and responds:

Trusting the national security to Democrats is like trusting a moving car to a four year old, or the management of a vast company to the junior high school business club. Neither the child nor the preteens want to wreck the car or ruin the corporation, but both results are near inevitable.

Meanwhile, the mavericks at the NYT seem to have found some merit with the decision that cannot be found anywhere else but Nation Magazine:

But for now, with a careful, thoroughly grounded opinion, one judge in Michigan has done what 535 members of Congress have so abysmally failed to do.

Not even Daily Kos sees that. In fact, a diarist there calls Taylor's reasoning "weak in a variety of ways." Shhh, though. Don't tell the Times.
