Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain

Censure remains popular

Am I being a broken record? Am I just banging on my drum (as a leader in the drum-circle left) until it breaks? Is it just an unreasonable obsession? I don't know, but I'm going to keep doing this until the right Cheddarsphere recognizes that Russ Feingold is solidly in the mainstream of American political thought. From the LA Times and Bloomberg (.pdf):
Q40. As you may also know, a U.S. Senator has valled for a Senate resolution to censure George W. Bush, which is a formal expression of disapproval, but does not carry any legal consequences. The Senator claims it was illegal for Bush to authorize government agencies to use electronic surveillance to monitor American citizens without a court warrant. What do you think? Do you think that George W. Bush should be censured by the Senate for this, or not?

Yes, censure 46
No, don't censure 45

(via myDD)
Among Democrats (remember, the right says that Russ is way on the left fringe), censure has support 3-1. A solid majority of independents--53%--support it, too.

The full poll results make for good reading, if you're bored, including questions about who can best handle the major problems facing the country, and who people want to vote for this fall.
