Sen. Chambliss on SWATting

One of my Senators, Saxby Chambliss, has taken a hand in the SWATting business.  I particularly appreciate this part of his letter to Attorney General Holder:
I appreciate your attention to this matter, and I look forward to your response no later than June 29, 2012. 
What was it they used to say about a mailed fist in a velvet glove?

On balance, Saxby and Johnny are up to the job and most often I have no complaints with their official actions.

Which is probably about as close as I will be caught to praising a politician.

On second thought, and in this case where both civilians and LEO's health and wellbeing have been placed in jeopardy by some malicious scum, I think I may write the good Senator a brief ATTABOY/THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

Extra points for setting what should be a very reasonable expectation that DOJ would actually do some investigating into the possibility of a crime occurring across state lines. Sorta like when the EPA gets a suspicious request from a plebe for contact information for an EPA official. That mighty suspicious request triggers the EPA to send out a team to the private citizens home to investigate.
