Interesting group of polls…
Nothing like a real scandal to cut through the conservative artificial bullshit on Bengazi and the IRS going after conservative tax cheats. That hissing sound of a giant conservative yellow backed scandal rubber duck deflating in the harbor…
And one of the interesting things abut a real scandal, that has to do with real rights, and the real Constitution, and real laws is…
It doesn’t break 90 Republican 90% Democrat anymore…Now does it?
Now… To be honest – I think this guy has done the country a lot of damage…

Unsure is this can be defined soley in terms of all good or all bad. It’s good that the NSA has been making news; conversation, and possibly some type of legilation (after 2014), can hopefully take place because of it: restrictions or guildlines on contactor company access to sensitive information should be a priority for example. But, some 29 year old running around the globe with sensitive information isn’t good – there are governments (regardless of where Snowden is geographically) that could treat him like a cat toy and take whatever he’s got, if they thought it was of any value. That may have already happened for all we know.

He is basically a cat toy for the Soviets and Chinese at the moment. The problem being he had access to lot more than just the telephone spying system.
