Diane Feinstein -

I have tried to be forgiving in any criticism of my representative,  Diane Feinstein.  I have supported her since she became the mayor of San Francisco all those years ago as a result of a catastrophe,  and I have understood that no politican can represent me as perfectly as I might represent myself, but today I am disappointed to learn that she caved-in on the appointment of Michael B. Mukasey.

There is no compromise on torture.  It is not what this country is about.  There is no compromise possible here.

We watched a pre-recorded Bill Maher last night, the one with Valerie Plame and her husband.   This show was not funny.  There was nothing to laugh at.  It has gone too far.  We have people at the top levels guilty of treason and now we continue to allow them to get away with it by confirming Mukasey, a man who will not speak out against waterboarding, and why is he okay?   Because he is not as bad as Gonzales.

Maybe this is what we get when we hold our noses and vote.  Our representatives do the same thing.

It is incredibly disheartening.
