Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

My E-Mail to Senator Murray

Dear Senator Murray,

I am writing you because I am shocked and deeply disturbed by your incomprehensible vote to confirm the nomination of General Michael Hayden as the new Director of the CIA.

I believe your constituents deserve an explanation as to why you could not see the uniform on the man who will lead this civilian agency at a time when each and every one us has become a suspect in the Bush Administration's search for terrorists. My I remind you that he is the same man who denied that the 4th Amendment to the Constitution included a requirement for a warrant.

I look forward to your reply.
