Chris Matthews offered this compelling series of arguments to justify the NSA wiretapping program today:
‘If you have a member of Al Qaeda in your Rolodex, you probably don’t want wiretapping. If not, it probably doesn’t matter to you.’
‘Has anyone come forward to say they have been listened to illegally? No harm, no foul.’
Admittedly, these are paraphrases. I left out the shameless pandering and spittle.
