I loves me some Russ Feingold. THIS is what I've been waiting five years to hear.

On Tuesday, January 30th, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold will chair a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing entitled, "Exercising Congress's Constitutional Power to End a War." Earlier this month, Feingold, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on the Constitution, became the first Senator to call on Congress to use its power of the purse to redeploy our troops safely from Iraq so that we can refocus on the global terrorist networks that threaten our national security. Feingold proposed this action after President George Bush announced plans to escalate our military involvement in Iraq despite the objections of members of both parties, military and foreign policy experts, and the American people.

Someone should let Saint McCain know that the "Straight Talk Express" rightfully belongs to Feingold now. Check out his statement at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Meeting on Iraq. (Transcripts here)
