This should improve the Senate’s popularity!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush faced new pressure on Thursday to explain the legal basis for his warrantless domestic spying program when a Senate panel authorized subpoenas to obtain administration documents.

About time too. Even three Republicans voted in favor: Orrin Hatch (?! is he up for election?), Specter, and uh, one other.

As for that 14%, seems Congress isn’t the only thing Americans are mad about right now:

Poll: Americans Have Almost No Confidence in Congress
A new Gallup poll shows that Americans have a record low level of confidence in Congress as an institution — only 14% said they had a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence. By contrast, 18% trust big business, 19% trust organized labor, 33% trust the public schools, 46% trust organized religion, and 54% trust the police.
