Well It's About Tittyfucking Time

A potential candidate in the 2008 presidential election has come out in support of gay marriage. Russ Feingold’s Legislative Assistants are probably already sending their resumes to HillPAC, but we think this is a bold, and necessary move. Will it rule him out as a winner? Probably. Will it draw fire from other Democratic candidates that foes will try to bog down with hotbutton issues like Iraq and abortion? Definitely. And that, for better or for worse, is a good thing.

But what’s more important is that Feingold is a serious candidate for president who will make a lot of news, and who will break ground for future presidential candidates. We don’t expect the next president to push through the legalization of gay marriage, or even the president after that, really. But we DO foresee a situation in which candidates who take this stand won’t have to make it the main issue of their platform. If Feingold follows through on this, chances are the media will bill him as the “gay marriage” candidate, no matter what spin he tries to put on it. Certainly Fox News will. But after him, citizens of the US will have a hard time getting so worked up about it because they’ll be more used to the idea.

PLUS, did you know he’s single? And Jewish?? Hags, start your engines!

Feingold is the man. He doesn't care what other people think of him; he does what he thinks is right.

The only member of Congress to call for a censure of Bush, the only Senator (99-1) to vote against USA Patriot in 2001. A true leader.

While he is single, I don't think he's gay- he has children.

it's the Jew thing that really sinks him, of course.

yeah I was happy with him, I still think he's an asshat, but I'm really proud that he said that, at least we'll have two years of people lying and saying that they think were okay before they stab us in the back.
Seriously he's crazy...but that just makes him normal on capitol hill
