Come Again?

Republican senator Pat Roberts has decided that he does want to keep an eye on this Bush character after all.

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Friday that he wanted the Bush administration's domestic eavesdropping program brought under the authority of a special intelligence court, a move President Bush has argued is not necessary.
But the best line is this one:
"I think it's the function and the oversight responsibility of the committee," he said, adding, "That might sound strange coming from me."
Gee, Pat, why would that sound strange coming from you? Is it because for the last five years, the Republicans in congress have completely abdicated their oversight duties? Is that why?
