Russ Feingold on the Daily Show in regards to the Censure

Russ Feingold is so cool. He is the Senator from my home state of Wisconsin and he is kicking ass right now in his bid for a censure on the President.

Here is a video clip of him on the Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart.

From Crooks and Liars...
Jon Stewart had on Russ Feingold tonight and let's just say that he rocked. He rocked because he spoke truth to power. He made his case simply and to the point.

Feingold: I was taught that the congress makes the laws and the president is supposed to sign them and enforce them. He's not supposed to make them up.---How many times are we going to let George Bush and Dick Cheney say you guys don't support the troops, you're not patriotic and let them push us around?

He stood up with conviction and said we're not going to take it any longer. He gave a clear and precise answer to James " less tainted" Boehner, (who had his hands dirty with tobacco money) and said the President needs to be responsible for his actions and has to follow the law. Something that this administration fails to recognize and something many of the "consultant-led" Dems need to learn from.

Feingold did an end-run around the party bosses. The audience at the Daily Show was effusive; you could hear the the ardor he inspired. Feingold was funny without being glib and he came across as self-effacing, principled, and just awkward enough with the format to be thoroughly charming. And his message set the crowd to cheering...
Keep at it, Russ!
-Mr. Joseph
