Chertoff pledges to weigh civil liberties

Between this, Condi Rice's claim that she is "aware" that it's "important" to have good diplomatic relationships with other countries, and Alberto Gonzalez assuring the public that his torture advocacy days are behind him, this administration has really raised the bar for lowered expectations. Coming up next: the new head of the FCC boldly states at his conformation hearing that he will "almost definitely not" use government funds to go on a tri-state whoring spree.
