Bob Barr Endorses Russ Feingold In Wisconsin Senate Race
Bob Barr Endorses Russ Feingold In Wisconsin Senate Race

Republican-turned-Libertarian Bob Barr has endorsed Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) over Republican Ron Johnson in the Wisconsin Senate race.

What I look for in Washington are folks in the Senate and the House who put the Constitution first. Not the "R" or the "D", not partisan politics but the Constitution. And what you have in Russ, and I have worked closely with him over a number of years to try to rein in the Patriot Act, to try to rein in the government surveillance and so forth -- this is a man who understands the Constitution, who supports and fights sometimes against his own party to defend the Constitution in the Congress of the United States in ways that are much more consistent and much more proactive than a lot of Republicans.

1. This tells you just how far right the rethugs have gone.
When Bob Barr thinks they're nuts, they really have gone off the deep end.

Fifteen years ago, I never thought I'd see the day when I agree with Bob Barr, let alone on multiple occasions. Scary.

4. I had the same sensation.
Though occasionally I felt tingles of it whenever Barr was criticizing Bush about the patriot act. It's just weird sometimes.

6. Technically, they are both Libertarians. Though Paul likes to cherry
pick the constitution, Barr has actually read the constitution.

2. I'm all for it if he can pull a few "independents" towards Feingold.
