Privacy, Security and Legislative Accountability
The latest bit that caused my jaw to drop was the privacy/security debate's congressional hearings.

The privacy violations to which our government has subjected us (and lied about over and over again) are bad enough ... but to try and cover them up with logic that wouldn't fool a second grader (I know; I tried it this week) is absolutely shameful. How many incumbents are going to have trouble in their next election bid after stunts like this one?
