One of the most important victories the blogosphere has achieved has been the derailing of telecom immunity in connection with the FISA debate. But the bottomless pockets on the other side have ensured that no succession of silver bullets, garlic and stakes through the heart is enough to make immunity stay dead. And so they are at it again, and trying to do it on the down low.

Greenwald has the latest, and is again leading the charge.

I know there is a fundamental conflict between claiming that this is the last stand for democracy and the other times I have said it. But you can think of us as the goalie protecting the Constitution and rule of law. This is sudden death overtime, and every shot on goal can destroy what is left of the republic.

This time the guy with the puck is, nominally, one of our own. Steny Hoyer has to be stopped, and ActBlue is taking him on.

I put my money where my mouth is. I urge you to do the same.

We don't need to do this indefinitely -- Congress will recess for summer in a few weeks, and the odds of it coming up on the eve of the election are probably remote. If we can stop it this time, we might just finally kill it dead.
