Feingold Calls for Bush's Censure

It's really yesterday's news, but I'm sure it was aimed as the first sally in Senator Feingold's campaign for the presidency in 2008.

Nevertheless, I have to wonder if anybody has actually sat down with the good senator from Wisconsin and explained to him about the Constitution of the United States? I mean, he's the guy who partnered with McCain to draft and pass BCRA, in direct violation of the First Amendment, where it states expressly "Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press", when the reality is, campaign finances are a form of political expression, in the category of "put your money where your mouth is".

And, now, he's determined to make a run for the highest office in the land, hacking away at its powers in advance. Um, he's going to scold the prez for doing for our national security what he didn't see fit to scold any previous POTUS for doing in the war on drugs? So, the war against terrorists isn't as important an issue to Feingold as the war on the jackass down the street who sells a couple of ounces of weed to pay for his own habit.

Color me impressed. Feingold has all the right stuff to be an Illinois politician.
