  •  That "more liberal" meme... (none)
    ...the Rethugs like to use is just so much swiftboating. In 2000, it was Gore who had been the most liberal member of the Senate. In 2004, it was Kerry. In 2008, the "most liberal" label will be applied to whoever we nominate.

    In Feingold's case, while he is quite progressive on a number of social issues, he's also a deficit hawk, and could probably be better labeled "libertarian" than "liberal" on a number of issues -- the Patriot Act, for one. And his voting to confirm the vast majority of Dumbya's appointments -- including, I think, all of his Cabinet nominees and the Chief Justice -- clearly show he's not afraid to act against the wishes of those <snark>scary liberal meanies who pick on the poor, innocent Republicans all the time</snark>.
