Feingold to censure...Baghdad Jim McDermott?

Sen. Moonbat Feingold (D-WI) wants to censure Bush for spying on phone calls to al Qaeda. Says it's illegal to record or monitor the conversations.

OK, then are we to assume that Feingold will simultaneously be pushing for calls to censure Baghdad Jim McDermott (D-WA), who was found guilty of (and has seen his appeals damned near exhausted)...I couldn't make this up if I tried...violating "federal law by turning over an illegally taped telephone call to reporters nearly a decade ago? At the time, Baghdad Jim was the ranking Democrat on the...(snicker)...House Ethics Committee!

I mean, a married couple (who are liberal hacks) illegally intercepted a phone conversation between Newt Gingrich and John Boehner, and gave the tape to Baghdad Jim...thus making him an accessory to the warrantless wiretapping! He then turned that over the New York Times, who were more than happy to run with it.

(Sidebar: the NYT didn't hesitate to run with a story on the contents of the Boehner/Gingrich (both Republicans) phone call without much thought or concern about how the tape was obtained...they didn't care. Yet recall when a Democrat Senate memo was obtained that explained how Janice Rogers Brown (black) and Miguel Estrada (Hispanic) needed to be filibustered on the basis of their race? Did the NYT run with that story? Nope...they focused on how the memo was obtained, not what it contained!

GOP phone call, illegally obtained...the contents, not how the tape was obtained, are newsworthy. Democrat Senate memo based on a racist strategy...the method by which it was obtained, and not the contents, is newsworthy. liberal media bias!)

After all, don't Democrats pride themselves on ideological consistency? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, I could barely finish typing that without cracking up! Democrats take about as much pride in adhering to consistency as Jesse Jackson takes pride in being camera-shy!

Anyway, I don't plan on holding my breath waiting for Moonbat Russ to condemn Baghdad Jim, do you?
