This scandal bracket was supposed to be a wry joke. Well, nobody's laughing now as we know that we can definitely fill in that last wild card bracket with the news about the NSA and Verizon.
People are furious, and they should be. Don't give us that stupid argument that if we've done nothing wrong, then we've nothing to fear from government agencies snooping around. Secret blanket surveillance is not OK. This isn't even targeted. This isn't about people suspected of wrongdoing. The NSA's just indiscriminately scooping up everything on everybody. Anyway, see this and this, which pithily snarks, "from the Verizon: home-to-nearly-100-million-terrorism-suspects! dept."
Oh, by the way, am I the only one starting to get a case of "scandal fatigue"? Another day, another mess in the news ... Hey, government overreach? Must be Thursday.
Also, Rand Paul.
UPDATE: But wait, there's more!
