    Bullshit, they don't want to fix it.
    I say fire 'em and get people in there who will do the job.

    I saw this yesterday, and the first thing that came to my mind is that an election year is coming up. If they were so fiscal conservative, they would have never voted the way that they did. These politicians know that this will be in the msm, and that the sheep will listen, and drink another glass of Kool-Aid.
    Everything in politics these days seems to be turning into a dog and pony show. I just hope all of America wakes up in time to figure it out.

    Russ Feingold is one of the best Senators in the country.

    I wish he ran for President in 2008. Considering he's only 56, he has time thankfully.

    I want any of you so called Conservatives to look up his record and say he'd be tough to vote for.

    You guys didn't really leave anything to add. This dog & pony show is purely for elections next year. People with any common sense can see it. The kool-aid drinkers will be thirsting for more.

    To a liberal Feingold is one of the best Senators in the country, let it be noted.

    Russ Feingold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Which of these positions do you disagree with:

    And that's not all to say the least. But go ahead, tell me what you disagree with.

    About 50 % of it. But he's not my Senator.

    1. Feingold has long been an advocate for creating a system of universal health care in America. During his first run for the Senate, he endorsed the single-payer model, similar to that used by Canada
    2. Feingold introduced the Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act of 2009.[39]
    3. On April 4, 2006, Feingold told constituents at a listening session in Kenosha, Wisconsin, that he supported the legalization of same-sex marriage

    4. Voted YES on $2 billion more for Cash for Clunkers program.
    5. Voted NO on prohibiting eminent domain for use as parks or grazing land.

    He's one of the Senators where my vote lives, and the best thing I can say in his favor is that he's only slightly less of a joke than Herb Kohl and David Obey.
