Top Copperhead Asks for Censure

Tuesday, March 14, 2006
John McCain's best across the aisle buddy proposed that the Senate censure the President over surveillance measures pertaining to overseas contacts between al Qaeda members and possible supporters here in the US. Russ Feingold has made a pretense of progressive principles the centerpoint of a very lackluster career. His anti-free speech bill (which McCain co-sponsored) is the capstone of an otherwise imminently forgettable member's ill spent time misrepresenting the people of Wisconsin.

His current tour de farce is an abject attempt to draw attention from Rockefeller and Durbin's involvement in the intentional disclosure of a clandestine program to the detriment of the security of the United States. Bill Keller of the New York Times may appreciate the attempt but his fellow Copperheads ran like the rabbits that they have generally proven, time after time, to be. Reid threw his standard hissy when Bill Frist called the Wisconsin charlatan's bluff and began to move the proposal to a vote. Feingold lacked the guts to even stay around for debate. A real model of progressive liberal courage.

Feingold and the other Copperheads are the biggest reason why the Republicans have very little to fear come November. Moderate Dems cringe every time one of their liberal compatriots approach a microphone and it would be extremely easy to come up with six Democratic Senators up for election this year who experienced extreme nausea when ol' Russ took the floor. The charade was finally referred to the Judiciary Committee where it will die without being mourned.

A senseless gesture by a liberal sycophant seeking favorable coverage in the zombie media. That's today's Democratic Party in a nutshell.

Well put that together with his campaign finance act and what do you have?

Don't forget the Daily Kos kids. Russ Feingold is among their favorites. They have done much to encourage him to act the fool.

I think Frist should consider bringing the censure motion to a vote.

Remember the 403-3 vote in the House when Murtha's pullout resolution was put to a vote? Even Murtha voted against it.

Forcing the Dems to vote on this would cause them a problem either with the Kos kids or with their constituents.

The strategy of the Republican Party should be to encourage a raging war between the Kos Kids and the so-called moderate faction. This might prove to be a sure winner in November.

This is all a ploy by Feingold to get his own page at the Daily Kos, just like Lurch.
