Black Spot for Lautenberg

Damn, Robert Gregory just blew a big hole in my enthusiasm for Lautenberg. His weak ACLU ratings are not a little tick but part of a broader worldview that in the anti-terrorism atmosphere will be dangerous. Lautenberg has served on the board of something called the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, where he shares company with Jack Kemp, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Newt Gingrich and former CIA-chief James Woolsey. The Foundation has a hard-line anti-civil liberties take on the war on terrorism, both domestically and overseas.

Lautenberg will still be better on domestic issues than Torricelli, but it looks like he'll be a depressing vote on individual rights and foreign policy.
