More Please

Sen. Russ Feingold has brass balls. Big ones.
"The mantra for Fox News is that we only hear the bad news (about Iraq). I was over there (in February), and we don't hear enough bad news," the senator told a listening session in Clinton this week.

The war, says Feingold, has turned into an "amazing mess."


While most members of the Senate appear to be content to let the administration off the hook, Feingold is paying attention to Americans who are asking for more information about whether the president and his aides faked up their case for war.

When someone at the listening session asked about the "Downing Street memo," minutes of a meeting of British officials before the war at which it was suggested that the Bush administration intended to "fix" the facts in order to justify an attack on Iraq, Feingold treated the allegations with appropriate seriousness.

"I can't tell you the amount of comment I've heard on the Downing Street memo," said the senator, who promised to pursue the issues raised by the memo with British Prime Minister Tony Blair and others.

Um, might I just suggest Mr. Feingold that you don't bother with Tony Blair? He's a lying fucker. Trust me.
