(One note: I am a Cheesehead, even if I am ashamed sometimes)
I will not be as vitriolic as I was the last time Wisconsin politics disappointed me so much, but fer fuck’s sake, people, why did you let this happen?
FiveThirtyEight is predicting a 97% chance Russ Feingold will lose tonight, and if he does, it will be against a huge damnned douchenozzle.
When I saw the first ad for Ron Johnson, it was so completely packed with lies about Feingold, that I assumed it was a third party attack ad. Instead, at the end, the candidate appeared, saying it was paid for and approved by him.
You, sir, sicken me.
Feingold visits every Wisconsin county every year.
Feingold does not accept pay raises. He has returned over $70,000 in salary and $3.2 million in office expenses back to the state.
He raised money mostly from small donors, and has asked outside groups not to run negative ads against his opponent, who has refused to do anything in kind.
Feingold was the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act, because he actually read it.
He voted against the Communications Decency Act in 1996 because of its Constitutional infringements. It was later stuck down 9-0 as unconstitutional.
He was one of only 23 senators to oppose the Iraq War.
Feingold served our country well, and I hope we don’t decide tonight to trade him for a lying prick.
Edit: FUCK. You let a millionaire buy his way to a Senate seat with nothing more than bullshit.
