PLAYING DUK KOO KIM TO W'S BOOM BOOM MANCINI:

U.S. Democrats seem ready to extend wiretap powers (Eric Lichtblau and Carl Hulse, October 8, 2007, NY Times)

Two months after insisting that they would roll back broad eavesdropping powers won by the Bush administration, Democrats in Congress appear ready to make concessions that could extend some crucial powers given to the National Security Agency.

Administration officials say they are confident they will win approval of the broadened authority that they secured temporarily in August as Congress rushed toward recess. Some Democratic officials concede that they may not come up with enough votes to stop approval.


Chuck Wepner looked better after a fight than Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi do after 9 months in "power".
