House Defies Bush


This just in:

The House voted Wednesday to block the FBI and the Justice Department from using the Patriot Act to search library and book store records.

Despite a veto threat from President Bush, lawmakers voted 238-187 to block the part of the anti-terrorism law that allows the government to investigate the reading habits of terror suspects.

After years of complaining that Bush never vetoes a bill, I find myself annoyed at the thought that he could pick up the habit now.
