Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman writes Slavish Republican lawmakers roll over for Bush:
Sen. Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas, defending the GOP proposal [on warrantless wiretapping] against critics who say it's pathetically weak, said he resented being called a "lap dog of the administration." That label certainly is unfair. Even lap dogs will bite if they're kicked often enough, which is more than you can say for congressional Republicans.
It's funny because it's true.
