This is rich. Pelosi intimates that Feingold is clueless
Feingold's censure call a distraction for his party

Congressional Democrats say Sen. Russell D. Feingold's move to censure President Bush for authorizing warrantless surveillance is a distraction from their quest to take back Congress in the fall.

"Every time we get in a great strategic position, we manage to energize the Republican base," Rep. James P. Moran, Virginia Democrat, told The Washington Times.

"Everything is going well for the Democrats and President Bush is tanking in the polls, and then Russ Feingold comes up with the idea of censure, which is going to go nowhere and is not just quixotic but is somewhat self-serving," he said.

Mr. Moran's comments echoed a theme used by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last week during a briefing with reporters…

"I have no idea why anybody would censure someone before they have an investigation," she said. "Why doesn't everybody just channel their energy into winning the election?"
