Yeah, yesterday during lunch I watched some of the hearing; just so happened that our very own pompous, arrogant, snot-nosed Senatorial embarassment was grandstanding for his DU constituency (some of whom may be over the age of 12...)
Ankle-Biters saw the same stuff:
Russ Feingold has likely done something no one thought possible - make both hard-core Dems and hard-core Republicans happy. He is prattling on about how Bush is a "pre-1776 mindset" (parroting a line he used in his Daily Kos diary entry of Feb. 2, 2006,) and calling Bush and Gonzales liars. This of course will have the Kos Kids and DU'ers standing on their feet and pumping their fists.
Meanwhile, Republicans such as myself are thrilled that Feingold is showing the American people, yet again, that they have not learned the lessons of 9/11, and are more concerned with a Bill of Rights for Terrorists than they are with the safety of Americans. Thanks Russ. The idot was badgering Gonzales about lying. Gonzales said you were asking me about a hypothetical. Feingold says well "you knew I wasn't asking it as a hypothetical" and said he was "mincing words". Yeah, because we all know that "hypothetical" really doesn't mean that, and that when Gonzales answered the President wasn't violating the law, Feingold could read his mind.
Feingold was in high dudgeon, (as much as possible for an irrelevant twit) and clearly thought that he could simply erase the earlier actual record (the Gonzales confirmation hearings) by simply repeating his lying assertion enough times.
How bad was it? It was so bad that neither Channel 4 nor Channel 6 ran any footage of Feinie's Follies.
