Chewing on NSA Graham Crackers

When it came out that the NSA had been sweeping up the phone records of all of Verizon Wireless' customers meta data, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made an interesting statement on FNC's Fox and Friends.

Graham is sure that the Government is just trying to track terrorists, so he doesn't mind if the Government monitors his meta-data on a general warrant, as he is not talking with terrorists.

Freedomworks wants to bolster Americans Constitutional rights, so they put up a challenge to Lindsey's open invitation to the NSA.

Obviously, the senior Senator from South Carolina does not care about the 4th Amendment, which was inspired by British General Warrants during colonial times.  Graham's belief that NSA was doing discreet checks through FISA courts, was mistaken. 

Of course the likelihood of Senator Graham having transparency with his e-mail password is about as likely as Graham running unopposed in the Republican Senatorial Primary in 2014. Until them, we can feast on other Lindsey Graham crackers, like questioning if bloggers have 1st Amendment rights
