Senators Vote Yes On Identity Theft!

As expected, all 100 Senators passed the Iraq appropriations bill today, because no Senator wants to face an opponent next election running commercials about how he or she "voted against supporting our troops in Iraq." Of course, that meant all sorts of stuff got included in the bill as well, including the Real ID act, on which there was absolutely no debate, and which is likely to make identity theft easier. Bruce Schneier makes the convincing argument about just how bad this really is for all of us. And people wonder why everyone is so cynical about the world of politics.
