Note to Democrats in Congress: grow a pair

Ditto to Blue over at Surrounded By Red.

Sen. Russ Feingold's resolution to censure President Bush for violating the law on wiretapping has some Democrats in Congress cowering as they have too often in the past. Republicans like Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) are calling for a vote, because they think it will help them retain control come the November elections.

What the Dems should realize is Frist's strategy is foolish. If the Republican majority marches in lockstep against the resolution, it only ties them closer to the White House and this unpopular president. If Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their colleagues want to take back Congress, they need to step up and take a stand on important matters like the president thumbing his nose at the Constitution, and the separation of powers.

Allelujah, G@D damn cowards.

Did you see the Daily Show tonight? They really laid into Schumer and the DNC for pushing out Paul Hacket.

Why the hell has "Liberal" become synonymous with "pussy"? One liberal stood in front of a column of Chinese tanks at Tianmen and Chuck Schumer is playing duck-duck-goose with the people's right to choose their own representation, let alone a vet's right to run for office, because they're afraid if someone actually stands-up for what he believes in, people may ask what the hell have the rest of them been doing this entire time.

Reach under your skirt and pull out your huevos, Charlie.

And nice language about Feingold in the recent DNC spam, Dean.

"Agree or disagree with his proposal, as a Senator -- and as an American -- he has the right to speak his mind..."

Way to suck up second-hand glory without actually taking a stand.

You're a bunch of cowards. Try to stand for something for once.
