Eat cheese or die!

I just want to give a shout out to both of my state's US Senators. Russ Feingold (D-Freakin' Awesome) and Herb Kohl (D-Better than McCain) have thrown their support to the Habeus Corpus Restoration Act. But alas, only 52 senators are on record for this important bill. We need eight more patriots to override President Bush's expected veto.

Habeus corpus guarantees that the government can't throw us in jail without letting us know the charges. Totalitarian dictators, police states, and the Republican Party have no use for habeus.

Russ Rocks! I wish he were my senator. Well Herb rocks too, but we don't want him to get too carried away with his age and all, LOL!!!

Russ should be the next PREZ!!!!!

Um, it takes 2/3 majority to override a veto. That would be 67 Senators. Getting to 60 would prevent a filibuster.

My bad. I mean to write that 60 votes are needed to head off a GOP filibuster. I'd almost rather see Bush veto the bill so his party's nominees would have to go on record for or against habeus.
