Feingold to Dane101: "Actually, keep your eyes open on Tuesday..."
Submitted by Jesse Russell on Sat, 2007-07-14 13:07. Current | Politics

I was having coffee with Russ Feingold's number three MySpace friend, Bessie Cherry, at In the Company of Thieves on Johnson Street this afternoon when who should walk in, but Wisconsin's favorite junior Senator. Cherry thought it would be a good time to actually meet her MySpace friend and invited him over to take a look at his page. Feingold smiled and said he can rarely keep up with all of the things happening on the internet.

I showed Dane101 to the Senator and figured I should ask him about the coming troop redeployment in the Senate. The Democrats need 60 votes to defeat a Republican filibuster and move the vote forward. I intended to ask "what do you plan to do in case of a filibuster?" but the words out of my mouth were "are you going to filibuster?" Thankfully, he seemed to get what I meant and replied:

"Actually, keep your eyes open on Tuesday, we're planning something big and important."

That really isn't all that revealing, but at least we know the Democrats who are for redeployment have something up their collective sleeves.

4. I think Russ is one of the best we have in Washington.
What an honor and a treat to meet him in person.

I'll keep my eyes wide open on Tuesday. Thanks for the heads up! :thumbsup:

5. Yeah right, Russ is going to do something after
voting for War in IRAN? The Senate voted to declare that Iran was committing acts of war against the United States: a 97-0 vote to give George W. Bush a clear and unmistakable reason to attacking Iran whenever Dick Cheney tells him to.

"UPDATE: Jonathan Schwarz points out that all of the Senates
Democratic candidates for president voted for Liebermans Iran War
amendment: Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, and Joe Biden. Just in case
you were expecting a saner foreign policy after the 2008 election."

This is the emergency situation dick and the bushes needed to declare martial law and kill our Democratic government. The stupid Democrats just handed crazy dick a loaded gun.

And Russ is going to fight a filibuster? Yeah right, like he didn't just vote to attack IRAN. Bomb. bomb. bomb, bomb, bomb IRAN. Seems the Democratic party is nothing but a bunch of warmongers.
