And Furthermore...

As a follow-up to my post below, Mark Levin has a few things to say about Mr. Feingold and his irresponsibility:

I know of nothing that Russ Feingold has proposed to make this nation safer from terrorists. He was the lone vote against the original Patriot Act and opposed recently renewing the watered down version. He opposes the president's exercise of his legitimate and traditional constitutional authority to intercept enemy communications during war. He opposes aggressive interrogation of al Qaeda terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay. In fact, there's no record of Feingold supporting any measure that would protect this country from another 9/11. We haven't been hit since then, no thanks to Feingold.

Read the whole article.

JASmius adds: The always adept John Cornyn of Texas produced another gem on his senate website today:

Results of Feingold Censure Resolution (S.Res. 398): Day 2

Democrat co-sponsors of Feingold Resolution: 0

al Qaeda communications intercepted by Feingold Resolution: 0

Terror attacks prevented by Feingold Resolution: 0

- U.S. Senator John Cornyn, chairman of the Emerging Threats and Capabilities subcommittee and member of the Judiciary Committee said, “I have taken a long and serious look at the legal authorities governing the NSA program that is the focus of this hearing. It is misleading to characterize the NSA program as some sort of broad-based 'domestic' spying on U.S. citizens. The NSA program is narrowly focused. It targets the international communications of al Qaeda in an effort to connect the dots and prevent another 9/11.”

I think Cornyn's Massachusetts colleague said it best: "Bring...it...on!"

My lingering question is where did the Donks get such a deal on the bottomless pit of rakes....
