Bill Glauber writes in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Online:
Belle Plaine - Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold wants to make one thing perfectly clear - he's for wiretapping terrorists. He just wants it done legally.***
[W]hen Feingold made his case to censure the president, he received sustained applause from a crowd of nearly 100 people at the Belle Plaine Community Center in Shawano County.
"If you were on the phone with an al-Qaida person, I support your being wiretapped, all the time, for a long time," he told the audience. "We have laws already that allow the president to wiretap your line for 72 hours without a warrant. All he has to do is apply for that warrant. . . . The whole thing they're saying about how Senator Feingold doesn't want us to be able to wiretap. That's absolute nonsense. I support wiretapping every single person who is working with a terrorist. Just do it within the law. That's all we ask."
In an interview, Feingold said letters to his office were running 3 to 1 in favor of his censure position. He said "people are coming around," although only two Democratic senators have become co-sponsors of the resolution: Tom Harkin of Iowa and Barbara Boxer of California.
Hey!! The rest of you Democratic senators!! See how easy that is? Framing! Simple words! Catapaulting the propaganda!
Again: Feingold: I support wiretapping every single person who is working with a terrorist. Just do it within the law. That's all we ask.
Now if only I can remember where I've heard that before...
