Update 3:20pm Eastern. Ed Morrissey reports on a House GOP walkout.

***

Can the Beltway still be living in a September 10 world? I’ve kept you updated on the latest FISA shenanigans by Democrats who would rather let the nation’s surveillance laws lapse to benefit their presidential candidates than agree to a permanent fix. Andy McCarthy rings the alarm bell on the latest:

I am hearing from several sources that the House is planning to recess on Friday without taking up the Senate bill. That would mean the lapse of our surveillance authority at midnight.

This is a game of roulette with our national security, spearheaded by the Democratic leadership in the House, which is following the lead of the party’s two presidential contenders, Sens. Obama and Clinton. Both of them voted against the emergency authorization last summer, and Obama voted against the Senate bill on Tuesday (Clinton did not bother to vote). Make no mistake. The MoveOn.org crowd is calling the shots on that side of the aisle.

President Bush has to keep pounding this, as does Sen. McCain. This is not politics, folks. For grown-ups, this is life and death.

Not just for grown-ups.

For your children and my children.

Call your Senators (and Congressional Reps!: 202-224-3121.
