Feingold: I’m the new Commander-in-Chief of the Tinfoil Beanie Brigade
Feingold Wants Bush Censured for Spying

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A liberal Democratic senator who is considering a White House bid in 2008 said Sunday he is seeking to censure President Bush over his domestic eavesdropping program. The Senate majority leader called it "a crazy political move."

A censure resolution, which simply would scold the president, has been used just once in U.S. history - against Andrew Jackson in 1834.

Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, a longtime critic of the Bush administration, said he hoped a censure would cause Bush to apologize for the warrantless surveillance that he put in place on his own after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001...

And yet Feingold, who entered the Senate in 1993, never had a problem with NSA’s Echelon program during the whole of the Clinton Administration.
