Imagine my surprise
Why don't you just pretend to be trying to pick my pocket, and I'll just pretend to be surprised?
The Rethuglicans demanded a "Sooper-Dooper Tippy-Toppy Hush-Hush Secret" House session, so they could discuss the House FISA amendment bill (more hilarity here from dday at Hulaballoo).

From Rep.Steve Cohen (D-TN 9th)Thought so.
Yesterday, for just the sixth time in House history and the first time in nearly 25 years, the House of Representatives went into secret session to discuss the electronic surveillance legislation. House Republicans requested the closed session, and while I can’t disclose what went on during that time, I can say definitively that no new information and nothing that needed to be kept secret was offered by Republicans during that time.
