Feinstein and Schumer Betray Voters And Embrace Mukasey and Torture

jclifford progressive bloggerA quick media activist message to senators Dianne Feinstein and Charles Schumer:

I just registered the two of you the kind of domain names you deserve, after pulling your stunt of endorsing the pro-torture Michael Mukasey to become Attorney General of the United States.

To Dianne Feinstein, I give the gift of the title of Worst Senator Ever, at worst.senator.ever.com

To Chuck Schumer, I give the gift of the title of Sorriest Senator Ever, at sorriest.senator.ever.com – wrapped up in a neat little bow.

The problems with Schumer and Feinstein aren’t just with Michael Mukasey and their apparent love of waterboarding torture. Both Charles Schumer and Dianne Feinstein voted in favor of starting the Iraq War. They also both voted in favor of censuring President Bill Clinton back in the 1990s, but then turned around and refused to censure George W. Bush.

Feinstein and Schumer both have a long history of kicking the Democratic base in the teeth. I think it’s about time that American progressives kicked back. We’re in no mood for the argument that Democratic politicians deserve our votes – not after the years and years of Democratic cowardice and betrayal.

Enjoy your new titles, Schumer and Feinstein. There’s more to come.
