Happy Birthday, Senator Feingold

Today, friends, marks Senator Russ Feingold's 53rd year of fighting for the people of America.

What's that, you say? Well, no, I suppose he didn't do all that much before age three or so. But nonetheless, happy birthday, Senator.

Unfortunately, the United States Senate missed the perfect opportunity to give Senator Feingold a great birthday present, by voting Tuesday to end debate on the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act, by a vote of 69-30.

In a nice touch, however, he did spend some of his time reading the Constitution, which, I suspect, is a document far too few of our politicians spend time reading. But it was once again renewed, without the civil liberties safeguards Senator Feingold was fighting for.

So let's see if we can give him a proper birthday present in 2009-- a better bill, really solving these problems, to be passed by a Democratic Congress and signed by a new president.
