Dissent-crusher and boring partisan whiner Duncan Black links to this post from John Aravosis on a recent New York Times article about Russ Feingold's call for censure of Bush the Younger.
Black doesn't really say anything, having become a macro-hack, so I'm not sure whether he stands with Aravosis' observation that the article
is simply absurd. As an election ploy, the Republicans want to declare all out the-sky-is-falling war against a straw-man, a going-nowhere-fast resolution offered by one single Senator, with barely any other Democratic support. It's all bull, but the GOP want to rally their base, and lying isn't past them, it's their standard operating procedure.In fact, it's a lie to say that your average Democrat doesn't hate this President and would mind seeing him censured, at the very least.
Come to think of it, John Conyers has a lot of people signed up to impeach this President as soon as they get the chance. And Tom Harkin looks like he's a supporter of the censure resolution, so this stuff isn't without its proponents, you know.
Even if they are motivated more by poll numbers than by what is in the best interests of the American People.
