Feingold Rocks

I may back him in '08
“None of your civil liberties matter much after you’re dead,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a former judge and close ally of the president who sits on the Judiciary Committee.

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), who has led a bipartisan filibuster against a reauthorization of the Patriot Act, quoted Patrick Henry, an icon of the American Revolution, in response: “Give me liberty or give me death.”

I left this comment yesterday, but it did not register for some reason: Isn't it ironic that the rallying cry of conservatives and McCarthyites in the 50's and 60's was "better dead than Red".
