Russ Feingold, the Quandary Personified

Ol' Russ, reminding us that Stopped Clocks are right now and again:

Here's the list of Senators who voted in support of Dr. Coburn's amendment to suspend all earmarks until deficient bridges are repaired, or didn't cast a vote:

NAYs ---14 Barrasso (R-WY) Burr (R-NC) Chambliss (R-GA) Coburn (R-OK) Corker (R-TN) Cornyn (R-TX) DeMint (R-SC) Ensign (R-NV) Enzi (R-WY) Feingold (D-WI) Grassley (R-IA) Isakson (R-GA) Kyl (R-AZ) McCaskill (D-MO)

Not Voting - 4 Craig (R-ID) Dodd (D-CT) McCain (R-AZ) Obama (D-IL)

Sen. Coburn proposed that ALL EARMARKS be suspended until the infrastructure (like bridges, for example) are brought up-to-snuff.

Feingold supported that proposal (despite the somewhat confusing "Nay" record-of-vote.)
