Senator Russ Feingold: The Indispensable Liberal

Thankfully, as we celebrate our independence this July 4th, we have Russ Feingold exhorting us to stand up for our civil liberties. Sadly, Feingold has had to shame his colleagues who mostly haven't read the so-called FISA compromise and could care less about its contents. Feingold's valiant efforts have helped to delay passage of this feculent legislation for the time being. It will require aggressive citizen action however to prevail over the well funded telecommunication companies.

Wow!

Are there other politicians YouTubing like this? This is fantastic. I wouldn't even mind seeing some of the Republicans explaining themselves like this. Where did you find this Rob?

Secondly, why in the hell is Obama supporting this Bill?!? Add this to his support for the blatantly unconstitutional Faith Based Initiatives, and I'm going to start looking for a third party candidate.
