With Bush’s poll numbers returning to post-Katrina/Harriet Miers lows, most Democrats seem to understand the political stupidity of Feingold’s move to censure the President.
Um, what? I think there's a step missing in there somewhere.
Republicans, on the other hand, should use the opportunity that Feingold has provided them and hammer Democrats mercilessly on this issue. If played right, this could be like the Jack Murtha episode where Democrats will have to turn off their non-stop Bush bashing and vote against Feingold or risk appearing to be on the Michael Moore fringe of the debate.
Yep, it wasn't that long ago that a majority of Americans believed Bush should be impeached over this, but now it's the "Michael Moore fringe of the debate" to slap Bush on the wrist with a censure. It would be comical if a bunch of Democrats and Republicans weren't about to fall for the swift-boating of Sen. Feingold.
