Babies and Bathwater Award
Goes to the douchebag from Kentucky, Sen. Jim Bunning (R. - surprised?), for his justification in killing proposed amendments to the Patriot Act which would protect the civil liberties of all Americans:
"Civil liberties do not mean much when you are dead."Life before liberty. He must have left school around 5th grade, before they got to the part about Patrick Henry.
