Political earnestness alert.
It’s hard not to love Russ Feingold for this:
“Gay and lesbian people in our country are fighting a mean-spirited movement to harm them and to discriminate against them. I stand with them against that movement, and I’m proud to stand with them.”
It’s not so much the position he’s taking, which I happen to endorse, as the common-sense, Upper-Midwestern-Lefty frankness that appeals.
It’s the same with the censure motion. I know it’s divisive. But is there any Democrat who doesn’t know exactly what the guy is talking about? There’s very little circumlocution here.
Am I wrong?
Not very presidential, though, which is too bad.
