  • Is America Ready for a Cheesehead President?

       November 27, 2005

    Isn't it about time America had a Cheesehead President? Senator Russ Feingold thinks so, or at least he said so on ABC's "This Week". But is Russ really the man Wisconsinites (and the rest of the country) want to be the first Cheesehead in the White House?

    Feingold is clearly positioning himself as not only the anti-war candidate, but also as the only man in the world who had the smarts to see through the efforts of the CIA, Defense Dept., Bush administration and world leaders past and present as they made the case for the Iraq war. But not only was Russ smart, he was also courageous. While other noble Democrats may have had an inkling that Bush was LYING, only Russ refused to be bullied. Seriously. That's the story Feingold told this morning on "This Week". He is running as the smartest, most courageous and noble man in the land. And he's single!

    Not only is that a lot to live up to, but his new sober smartypants image also contradicts the Russ Feingold that Wisconsinites have voted for in the past three elections. That Russ was a liberal to be sure, but an independent-minded liberal with an irreverent sense of humor. He was the Democrat's own McCainian maverick, but better looking and with a better personality. Now, it certainly looks to me like Feingold is getting into bed with the looney Cindy Sheehan left that is mobilizing itself to go up against that "hawk" Hillary Clinton.

    The quest for power makes for some strange bedfellows indeed. Even though I usually disagree with him (and I think McCain/Feingold is one of the worst laws on the books), I've always respected Feingold. I feel that respect slipping away. By running his infant campaign on a message of "the war was wrong", he's putting himself in a position of rooting against his own country. Think about it. In two years, if all's well in Iraq, he's an idiot who opposed a successful war. His future success now hinges on his country's failure.

    I think there are too many holes in this Cheesehead.

    Those of us who believe the war was and is wrong aren't "rooting" against our country and it isn't fun. We're upset about the arrogance and hubris of this administration and about the dead and wounded due to that arrogance and hubris. Less than 20 years after the Soviets fell, the world doesn't quite seem as "American" as it did, does it? If you think that makes the left happy, you're way, way off target. Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit goeth before a fall, and we --- largely through these idiots in this administration --- have shown plenty of both recently. What about those who've died? Those who've been wounded and had their lives and families disrupted. And for what? For what? Hubris, that's what.

    Feingold's an actual liberal? Lo and behold.
