"The Vice President probably shouldn’t have phoned in to the Rush Limbaugh Propaganda-Festival yesterday. Sixth sentence out of Mr. Cheney’s mouth: The FISA bill is about, quote, ‘retroactive liability protection for the companies that have worked with us and helped us prevent further attacks against the United States,’" Olbermann said.
