It is almost impossible for anyone outside this damn beltway to really understand how the Congress works. If you aren’t here, walking the halls of Congress, sitting at bars and attending parties where you get to knock back some brews with Hill staffers, you don’t have a handle on the almost numbing amount of bullshit that goes on.

In 1991, the latest year figures are available, most Americans, across all age groups, disapproved when asked the question: ‘Everything considered, would you say that you approve or disapprove of wiretapping?’ Some 67% of all 18-20 year olds gave the thumbs down, as did 68% of the Gen-X crowd…Boomers disapproved of wiretapping almost 3-to-1 while 67% of those 50 and over disapproved.
