A Senate Maverick Acts to Force an Issue

Senator Feingold regularly acts as the conscience of the Democratic party, taking stances that are the right result without regard for the context of politics.

It’s hard work, being a conscience.  I suspect the Democratic party will treat him the same way most people treat their consciences: by telling him to sit down and shut the fuck up.

A pity, really, because Bush deserves far worse than censure for intentionally ordering the illegal wiretapping of thousands of Americans.
