We didn’t care about the Patriot Act, Guantanamo Bay, waterboarding or drones strikes. Hmm. Let me go out on a limb and make a bold prediction: We aren’t going to care about the NSA scandal either.
The same dumb, mindlessly all-American tubbies who bought duct tape after 9/11, thought Saddam Hussein was just like Hitler, and said it was “better to fight the terrorists over there than over here” will decide the matter for us. They always do because they are the majority, and right now that majority is saying this: If you haven’t done anything wrong, you don’t have anything to worry about.
Game, set, match.
