Fretting And Caving

As Yglesias suggests, the message that the public gets about Democrats is simultaneously they want al Qaeda to eat your babies and they don't have enough courage to stand up to George Bush. So, Democrats surrender to Bush and al Qaeda! Awesome.

The way to deal with this is get out and front and explain that giving immunity to AT&T does not, in fact, have anything to do with the safety of your children.

I recognize part of the problem is that there are lots of bad Democrats who think giving immunity to AT&T is the just and right thing to do. So it's time for the leadership to punish them.
